Runaway June Brings a Bohemian Energy to the Country Scene
Bringing back the power of a female vocal trifecta, Runaway June infuses soulful vocals with empowering lyrics that speak to the modern woman everywhere. Described as “Rootsy and brightly colored,” Runaway June mixes traditional bluegrass with a “dusty desert” bohemian energy. The all-female group signed by 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).
Since their first debut single, “Lipstick,” Runaway June has catapulted to the top of the charts, earning themselves a 2018 ACM nomination for “New Vocal Duo or Group of the Year.” Quite a feat for a breakout country group. With rave reviews from Billboard, Rolling Stone Country, The Huffington Post, and CMT, we don’t see them running away from the charts anytime soon! Their current single “Buy My Own Drinks,” co-written by Runaway June, Hillary Lindsey and Josh Kear, solidifies their boot print on the country music industry.
What is most endearing about Runaway June is their love for their fans. Lead singer and guitarist Naomi Cooke recalls the thrill and immediate connection that came with introducing their new song to the world: “The first time we played ‘Buy My Own Drinks’ - we had just gotten the final mixes back on the recording and we had been rehearsing it with the band and we were so excited to try it out and let everyone hear what we had been working on. By the second chorus, everyone was singing it back. It was beyond wild for us to see that happening. It was one of the most exciting moments in our group history…we really felt something different happening.”
