At a recent show here at The Acorn Alliance we were informed there was going to be a last minute addition to the line up; Baltimore-based Andrew Grimm touring as the solo embodiment of his band June Star. Scheduling shuffles are common when you're booking shows; you come to expect it. What I didn't expect was for Andrew's songs to hammer me straight in the heart. I couldn't get them out of my soul once they found their way in there.
Hardly a fresh face in the musical world, June Star has actually been around the block a time or too and accomplished quite a lot in those years of honing their craft. I put my offer on the breakfast table the next morning, "Andrew, I'd love to put those songs on a record". Surprisingly he was eager to do the same. The winds of destiny blow so sweetly in any season.
So we're happy to announce the upcoming new single that will be available on the Future Oak Webstore Friday, March 25. This will feature two incredibly powerful new tracks from June Star and letterpressed artwork from our own Katie Ford.
