Runaway June made quite am impact on these shores earlier this year when they came over for the C2C Festival, so it’s with great delight that we are able to share the news that they’ll be releasing their debut album later this month! Named ‘Blue Roses’,the album will be released on the 28th June and is produced by Dann Huff and Ross Copperman.
“June has always had a special meaning to our band,“ stated Jennifer Wayne, of Runaway June. “The name Runaway June is symbolic of the many pivotal moments in our lives and career that happen in the month of June. It’s only fitting that our first album comes out in June!”
Runaway June formed four years and are comprised of Naomi Cooke, Hannah Mulholland and Jennifer Wayne. The trio have made incredible waves in recent months, becoming the first all-female trio in more than a decade to earn three Top 40 hits and also becoming an ACM and CMT nominated band.
“We’ve been together for four years now, but this is our debut album,” said Mulholland. “We really harmonized as a band through songwriting and being out on the road, so I feel like, through that journey we were able to learn more about ourselves as people – as women, as performers, as artists – and figure out what we wanted to say, all of that is reflected in these songs.”
“The album has many different faces, and it really represents all the sides of who we are. Our songs are deeply Country,” added Cooke. “We aimed to make a compelling record that displays our character, personality and where our heart is. That’s why ‘Blue Roses’ is the title track. It’s a deeply personal song we wrote several years ago, but have kept for something special”
