Jus­tice wants to grow her own

Vic­to­ria Jus­tice is on a mis­sion to find a sound, dis­tinct from writes

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - PAY TV -

IC­TO­RIA Jus­tice re­cently dropped a sound­track for her hit Nickelodeon se­ries Vic­to­ri­ous, but she’s also in the process of de­vel­op­ing her own sound as a solo act.

‘‘I want to write mu­sic that’s go­ing to ap­peal to ev­ery­one,’’ Jus­tice says.

‘‘As for pro­duc­tion, I don’t think I’ve quite found my sound yet . . . I want to work with pro­duc­ers who are unique and have a dif­fer­ent sound.’’

Jus­tice, 19, says she’s un­sure when she’ll re­lease her own ma­te­rial, but Vic­to­ri­ous 2.0 – the show’s sec­ond sound­track – de­buted at No. 18 on the US Bill­board charts this month.

Jus­tice co-wrote some of the tracks, which also fea­tures her cast mates, and says mak­ing mu­sic for the show is help­ing her grow as an artist. Vic­to­ri­ous is in its third sea­son. Jus­tice says de­spite the show’s young na­ture, the sound­track is for all ages.

‘‘It’s just not kids’ mu­sic. A lot of the lyrics are ac­tu­ally smart and so­phis­ti­cated,’’ she says.

The en­ter­tainer says her mu­si­cal in­flu­ences range from Brit­ney Spears to Carole King.

The teen had only six days off last year, and her sched­ule will get even busier when she launches her tour on Au­gust 2 in Cal­i­for­nia. It wraps on Septem­ber 14 in Michigan.

‘‘I want my sound to be dif­fer­ent from the mu­sic that’s been on Vic­to­ri­ous,’’ she says.

‘‘I want there to be a dis­tinc­tion be­tween Vic­to­ri­ous songs and Vic­to­ria Jus­tice songs.’’

Jus­tice will ex­pand her brand when she ap­pears op­po­site Chelsea Han­dler and Johnny Knoxville in Fun Size, the di­rec­to­rial de­but by Gos­sip Girl and The OC cre­ator Josh Schwartz.

In the film, Jus­tice’s char­ac­ter hopes to at­tend New York Univer­sity, but in real life she says she has no plans to go to col­lege.

‘‘I don’t have any time to think about col­lege right now. Down the road I might take on­line col­lege cour­ses in sub­jects I’m in­ter­ested in like English and psy­chol­ogy,’’ she says.
