Chosen Music/Atlantic Records recording artist Justice Carradine has shared his first new single in over a year, “Tears In My Eyes”, which was shot in in Justice’s home state of Utah. Born out of Justice’s first-ever panic attack, which he experienced driving from Utah to LA to record new music, the emotionally charged new single is the singer-songwriter’s most vulnerable release to date. Co-written by Justice and produced by JHart (Justin Bieber, Camila Cabello), Jesse St. John, and Pink Slip, the song has already earned over 1M views across teaser videos on TikTok.
“I think the human spirit is resilient,” says Justice. “We always find a way to push through challenging or intense experiences. To me, ‘Tears In My Eyes’ reflects that in a vulnerable way.”
“Tears In My Eyes” follows the self-reflective “Okay,” which similarly centered around mental health struggles Justice endured in his teens. Upon release, PAPER quickly called the “tender track,” joined by a cinematic music video, “quietly reflective and equally as vulnerable” while Billboard praised Justice’s vocal performance, writing, it “glistens with a warmth and sturdiness, his tone bouncing off the plucked guitar strings and eventually floating into a croon.” Hailed by EUPHORIA as “an undeniable rising star,” Justice grew up in a household surrounded by music, picking up ukulele, drums, piano, and guitar at just five years of age. His rich family heritage – Italian on his dad’s side and half-Samoan/half-Apache on his mom’s – proved huge inspiring, with his Native American background especially influencing him on a profoundly personal level. At 13, Carradine began posting videos on Vine, quickly developing a devout social media following whilst still in junior high. He transitioned to YouTube in 2015, racking up more than 5M views for his inventive covers of artists including The 1975, Post Malone, and Ed Sheeran. Justice soon began penning his own songs fusing alternative, R&B, rock and more into his own brand of pop reminiscent of Conan Gray and Troye Sivan.
In 2019, Justice made his Chosen Music/Atlantic Records debut with the soulful single, “Dangerous Love,” for which the video premiered on Billboard. Soon after, the follow-up single, “Necessary Evil,” prompted Ones To Watch to declare him “a veritable pop tour-de-force.” Additional acclaimed releases followed including “Can’t Feel A Thing” and “Limbo.” Known for his remarkable range and undeniable charisma, Justice proved an equally charming live performer, earning acclaim while touring North America alongside fellow rising stars Spencer Sutherland and K-Pop star Amber Liu. Carradine’s distinctive presence and unique style has also seen him featured in high profile campaigns for such diverse brands as Hollister, Puma, and M&Ms. You can connect with Justice Carradine via the following links.
