Max Shakun (of the folk rock band Parsonsfield) offers a witty twist on the classic singer/ songwriter/ indie acoustic set. Unafraid to traverse his effortlessly smooth falsetto, Max will have you both grooving in your seat, and contemplating the more intricate parts of life.

Emma June

  • Indie Folk
  • Singer/Songwriter

EMMA JUNE sings about the ways in which we build ourselves into empty factories of potential productivity, and transform ourselves into lonely machines, the campaign to keep the head, heart and hands connected in an age of disconnection, and yes, love lost and won.

Fighting to find their identities as lady artists in an industry that wants to keep them demurely dressed in pearls…They are unrelenting. Music unfolds into a howl, towers of dreamy harmonies, reverberant instrumentation, while the riverside rings with red-winged blackbirds and takes you away without apology.
