Like their namesake heirloom apple variety, Red June has strong roots in the Appalachian tradition while constantly forging new ground in American music.
Red June is a powerful acoustic trio from Asheville, North Carolina performing beautifully distilled original American music. They are making waves with their dynamic, yet refined sound that features striking three-part harmonies, tasteful instrumental work, and honest, soulful songwriting that seamlessly blends bluegrass, old-time, country and American roots music. Red June has been capturing the hearts of audiences across the country and has performed at the renowned Music City Roots live radio show in Nashville, TN as well as Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion, Shakori Hills Grassroots Festival, Suwannee Springfest and the 25th anniversary MerleFest.
Acclaimed NC singer/songwriter Joe Newberry exclaims, “Red June is one of our truly great bands. They never fail to talk the talk and walk the walk.”
The band released their second full-length album, Beauty Will Come, on June 5th, 2012. This recording touches on timeless themes of transition, hope, loss and renewal, from deeply personal perspectives. Featuring original songs by all three band members, as well as a traditional gospel a capella, Beauty Will Come is sure to please the most discerning ear.
“Beauty Will Come by Red June just may be the most stunningly gorgeous country album in years" - Mike Greenblatt, Aquarian Weekly
“Beauty Will Come is a brilliant integration of old-time, bluegrass, and beyond, and feels like a holding of hands... the blend is beautiful. It’s world class music.” says singer/songwriter Kari Sickenberger of Polecat Creek.
Red June is Will Straughan on resonator guitar, guitar and vocals, John Cloyd Miller on mandolin, guitar and vocals, and Natalya Weinstein on fiddle and vocals. The three have been longtime friends, and first jammed together at a pickin’ party in Asheville in 2005. In late 2008 they formed Red June and went on to release their debut album, Remember Me Well, in 2010. Remember Me Well was very well received, and was voted the #1 regional release of 2010 by the listeners of the southeast’s premier independent radio station, WNCW.
“For those who seek well-crafted songwriting and impeccable musicianship, you just can’t go wrong with the acoustic instrumentation and powerful harmonies of Red June’s Remember Me Well. It’s an exciting debut from a collective of outstanding performers.” writes Chris Mateer in No Depression.
Adam Klein is a singer/songwriter, troubadour, and world traveler playing Americana and rustic country folk music out of Athens, Georgia.

Sky Blue DeVille represents yet another step forward for Klein's versatile songwriting as he continues to explore and expand upon sounds rooted in his exciting brand of Americana and folk.
"Calls to mind Memphis soul, Elvis Presley, great songwriters like Steve Forbert and Willie Nile, and good old-fashioned American folk. It's clear that Adam Klein is the real thing and his new record is spot on."- Michael Verity's Americana Minute
"… nine songs of clean, winsome but lonely Americana and country soul… Sky Blue DeVille, at its most tender and honest, reflects the calm genius of Lyle Lovett's Pontiac."- Andre Gallant, Athens Banner Herald
