Well since we been done I’ve been trying to un-fall apart
And I’ve been thinking that some neon lights
Would be a real good start
Well I called a couple friends
But they all say they’re staying in
So I guess I’m going out on my own I might be heart broke
But that don’t mean that I gotta stay home, yeah
Composed of the organic, three-part harmonies of Naomi Cooke (lead vocals/guitar), Hannah Mulholland (vocals/mandolin) and Jennifer Wayne (vocals/guitar), Runaway June is Wheelhouse Records’ vocal trio.
Runaway June’s first full-length album, Blue Roses was released on June 28th. Produced by Dan Huff and Ross Copperman.
The name Blue Roses is derived from a stirring and emotional song on the album which was written in the wake of Naomi’s loss of a family member. It took some time before the band was able to embrace the emotions of the song fully to perform it live, but once they did, it came to symbolize the openness of music, which they feel compelled to share with their fans.
