Runaway June tells the "backstory"

Friday, August 13, 2021 – Runaway June will release a three-song EP, "backstory," on Aug. 20 through Broken Bow Music Group.

The music is characterized by harmonies, western bluegrass, heartbreak, break-ups and moving on.

The trio consists of Naomi Cooke, Natalie Stovall and Jennifer Wayne. Stovall is the newest member of the group, having replaced Hannah Mulholland. Nevertheless, Mulholland had a hand in writing one of the songs.

Dann Huff produced the first two tracks of the EP. Opening with the bluegrass head-banger, "Forgot About That" romanticizes all the good memories that surface when you run into your ex, forgetting about the relationship's downfall.

"Down The Middle" is about the trauma of a breakup.

Produced by Mark Trussell, "T-Shirt" — the up-tempo, good riddance track — rounds out the project.

Runaway June joins Luke Bryan's Proud To Be Right Here Tour on Thursday, Aug. 19 in St. Louis.

The track list is:
1. Forgot About That (Naomi Cooke, Jennifer Wayne, Corey Crowder, Emily Shackelton)*
2. Down The Middle (Naomi Cooke, Jennifer Wayne, Hannah Mulholland, Barry Dean, Tofer Brown)*
3. T-Shirt (Naomi Cooke, Jennifer Wayne, Adam Hambrick, Mark Trussell)^
* Produced by Dann Huff

CD review - Blue Roses Runaway June - Naomi Cooke, Hannah Mulholland and Jennifer Wayne - weave gorgeous harmonies around the lyrics of these songs on their new album, all but four of which they wrote with other writers. The trio have a way with their phrasing, getting inside the songs and making them their own. The beauty of the album lies in the singing, but we've all heard these songs about breakups, makeups, loss, and love before, and by the closing track, we're left with faded memories of beautiful voices. ...
CD review - Runaway June Finally, after two long years of hard work and positive buzz, Runaway June has dropped its debut self-titled EP. With hitmaker Dann Huff on board as producer and early tracks having received praise both in print and in concert. So, is it worth all the hype? In a word, yes. While Runaway June, comprised of Naomi Cooke (lead vocals, guitar), Hannah Mulholland (vocals; mandolin) and Jennifer Wayne (vocals; guitar), are fresh to the scene, they play together like a well-oiled machine. ...
