The story goes that after two years in high school, Justine (born Justine Indira Skyers) left to be homeschooled and focus on her music professionally.
She gained notoriety on Tumblr in the pre-VSCO girl days of Alexis Ren and Staz Lindes. Her passion was always music, so in addition to YouTube covers she recorded a mixtape called Skye High, which got her signed to Atlantic Records and then Roc Nation.
