Like their namesake heirloom apple variety, Red June has strong roots in the Appalachian tradition while constantly forging new ground in American music.
With a dynamic yet refined sound featuring striking three-part harmonies, electrifying instrumental work, and honest, soulful songwriting, Asheville NC’s Red June has been capturing the hearts of audiences all across the country. A power trio consisting of Will Straughan on dobro and guitar, Natalya Weinstein on fiddle, and John Cloyd Miller on mandolin and guitar, the three seamlessly blend country, bluegrass, and American roots music with a dash of indie rock sensibility to create something entirely original and inspiring. Red June recently signed with Organic Records and 2014 is promising to be momentous with the release of their highly anticipated third album, Ancient Dreams, on April 15th.
“Ancient Dreams is illustrative, honest and exquisitely crafted. It is music that is evocative and instantly comforting.” – Dan Harr, Music News Nashville
2013 was highlighted with John winning 1st place in the bluegrass category at the venerable Chris Austin Songwriting Contest at MerleFest as well as a coveted Artist Fellowship for songwriting from the NC Arts Council. The band members have been longtime friends, first jamming together at an Asheville music party in 2005. In late 2008 they formed Red June and went on to release their first album, Remember Me Well, two years later. Their debut was very well received, and was voted the #1 regional release of 2010 by the discerning listeners of the southeast’s premier independent radio station, WNCW. Their follow up studio project, Beauty Will Come (2012) also garnered much attention.
“Beauty Will Come by Red June just may be the most stunningly gorgeous country album in years.” – Mike Greenblatt, Aquarian Weekly
“For those who seek well-crafted songwriting and impeccable musicianship, you just can’t go wrong with the acoustic instrumentation and powerful harmonies of Red June’s Remember Me Well. It’s an exciting debut from a collective of outstanding performers.” – Chris Mateer, No Depression.
