Goodbye June Biography
Goodbye June is an American rock band from Nashville, TN. The band blends classic heavy blues with raw and intense rock n’ roll, creating a sound and experience as heart-pounding as the fiery Pentecostal tent revivals of their upbringing. After guitarist Tyler Baker received the devastating news that his brother, PFC Shane Baker, had been in a fatal car accident while on leave, his cousins Brandon Qualkenbush and Landon Milbourn traveled to southern Indiana and immediately began writing songs to cope with the tragedy. Eventually named Goodbye June in memory of their loss, the trio packed up and moved to Nashville and it's emerging rock scene. Since the release of their first album "Nor The Wild Music Flow," Goodbye June has solidified their reputation as a hair-raising live act and toured extensively throughout Europe, the Southeast and Midwest including shows at Live On The Green and the Forecastle, Midpoint and Red River Revel music festivals. They have been the featured "artist of the week" at WRLT (Lightning 100), resulting in spins on "Daisy" from their forthcoming album. The song recently won the international Unsigned Only grand prize beating out 8,000 other entries. Goodbye June continues to put the finishing touches on their sophomore album with Grammy-nominated producer Paul Moak and will embark on a Fall tour with ZZ Top and Blackberry Smoke. The band is fired up about their future, "we want our album and touring to showcase our grit and soul by focusing on straight up rock 'n roll."
