June & the Bee at The Iron Horse Music Hall, September 22, 2012

Meet June & the Bee: junebee1

Lead photo and this biography were submitted directly from the musicians. Please contact us for reprints.

June & the Bee are a brother sister group hailing from Amherst, MA.  Their first original musical arrangement was comprised of Eli on the beloved red kazoo and Emma June on the frying pans, respectively.  Since then Eli (the Bee) has taught himself guitar and Emma June has  taught herself the ukulele. June & the Bee credit their folk influence to their father, who would vivaciously sing his own renditions of "The Star Spangled Banner" and play the harmonica, when they were younger.  Emma June and Eli gained much of their musical inspiration from their upbringing in the arts based pedagogy of Waldorf education.


Emma June is 20 years old and enrolled at The University of  Massachusetts, Amherst as a sophomore, with a self-designed major in  Arts and Education. In her spare time she is avidly creating devised  immersive theatre.   Eli is 17 years old, and a senior at Amherst  Regional High School. In his free time he is a member of the Central  Rock Climbing Team.

Emma June and Eli started performing their music in 2011, in the cozy venue of their home kitchen. After many raucous dances by their mother and many encores from their dog Sofia, they were fortunate enough to land their first gig (out of the kitchen) on to the stage of The Iron Horse where they opened for Gentlemen Hall.  They are currently in the  process of mastering their first EP, June & the Bee.  They hope to continue to share their tunes with the world.
