"I've been singing for as long as i can remember" says Tubby Justice, the Adelaide based singer, who moved here in 1979 from Victoria where her large family had generated a love for music of all types.

It was in Adelaide that she made many friends within the musical community, including Trombonist Steve Matters, who was very encouraging, especially in song writing. Using drum machines, keyboards and four track recording facilities, Tubby and Steve produced a series of demo tapes over a couple of years which were played extensively in Adelaide and Melbourne radio via 5MMM (now 3D) and 3RRR.

Then came the bands, "Cool School" with Steve and Terry Bradford and "T J and the Tractors" again with Steve Matters. Some work as a duo rounded off Tubby's experience as a live performer and by this stage a growing demand for an album of Tubby's music was beginning to show. Tubby, Steve and Terry agreed to put it all together and after much hard work, "Sense" was completed.

"It's very emotional music, very elusive. That's something I like
about all music, what makes it great is what you can't quite put
your finger on."
