About Runaway June
Lauded by Billboard as the "Next Hot Trend in Country Music" and likened to a "Dixie Chicks for a new generation", Runaway June's organic three-part harmonies and ringing strings are sweeping the nation, leaving a mark on one infatuated audience after another with its "inescapable talent" (axs.com). The BBR Music Group/Wheelhouse Records act is comprised of the vocal stylings and musicianship of Naomi Cooke (lead vocals, guitar); Hannah Mulholland (vocals, mandolin); and Jennifer Wayne (vocals, guitar). The troubadour-hearted trio is receiving early rave critical notices from the likes of Billboard, Nash Country Daily, Perez Hilton, Rolling Stone Country, Sounds Like Nashville, The Morning Hangover, WhiskeyRiff and more for its brand of organic and melodic country music. Runaway June's debut single "Lipstick" has made them the first all-female trio in a decade to earn a Top 30 hit on the Billboard and Mediabase country radio charts.
