June Star has been an Americana, alt-country band slinging songs in Baltimore bars (and beyond) since 1998. Founded and led by Andrew Grimm and featuring many Baltimore musicians over the years, June Star will continue on forever and forever, playing in rooms to people who want to hear them. The band’s current lineup is Grimm along with Dave Hadley and Mike Kuhl.
“There may have been a few lineup changes during the now two decades long career of June Star, but the real constants in that time have been the leadership of Andrew Grimm and the unwavering quality and originality of the music. Add to that Andrew’s highly individual and powerfully evocative vocal style that can’t be mistaken for anyone else’s; a style that displays his ability to go through a variety of emotions, situations and tempos. Add his peerless writing and the sheer dynamism and originality of everything this talented artist/ band produces and what more could any roots music fan wish for?” —Mike Morrison, American Roots UK
