About the artist:
Ol’ June is a soul singer from the Midwest. His childhood was punctuated by back of the school bus commutes immersed in the comfort of songwriting escape. Hours spent writing, singing and arranging…all to himself. As a shy kid, he concentrated his talents on music production, opting to hold back his true gift of singing and songwriting.

Things changed when he joined the church choir and found his voice. The heartbeat of his personal music journey was marked by long family car rides, sound tracked by the songs of Commissioned and The Winans. He later found himself discovering artists such as Donny Hathaway and Marvin Gaye. Their music had feeling. Taken by the emotion in their lyrics and the tone of their voices, he found his passion.

Since stepping out of his shyness and into the public arena, collaborators consistently take note on the ease of which he composes, crafting stories about love, God and the state of humanity through song.

And now, he’s ready to share his offerings with the rest of the world.
