In early September, Red June signed with Organic Records, a new eclectic Americana label from Crossroads Entertainment in Arden, NC. The band has studio time scheduled in December of 2013, with an anticipated release of Spring 2014. Other highlights of 2013 include band member John Cloyd Miller winning the Chris Austin songwriting contest at MerleFest as well as a competitive Artist Fellowship for songwriting from the North Carolina Arts Council.
Red June’s 2012 release, Beauty Will Come, was met with high acclaim with Aquarian Weekly stating, “Beauty Will Come by Red June just may be the most stunningly gorgeous country album in years.” Their debut album, Remember Me Well, was released in 2010 with WNCW listeners voting the album the #1 regional release of 2010.
The Red June sound seamlessly blends bluegrass, old-time, country and American roots music and features striking three-part harmonies, tasteful instrumental work, and honest, soulful songwriting. Chuck Dauphin from Music News Nashville writes, “Will Straughan, John Cloyd Miller, and Natalya Weinstein possess a airtight harmony that will impress even the toughest critic. Listen to their vocal blend on “I’m Willing To Try,” and you may need to have your jaw surgically removed from the floor – they are that good!”
