Since the release of his debut EP at the end of 2014 indie-pop artist Autumn In June has made a significant impact upon the L.A music scene while simultaneously developing an extensive online fan base. His music features an eclectic mix of electronic melodies, hip-hop beats, and soulful lyrics, while maintaining an air of fun as he establishes a foundation of indie-pop throughout his records. This can be heard in his latest singles Weeks and Hey Arnold as they draw the listener in with rich melodies and catchy lyrics while also highlighting the individual style of this artist, something that he attributes to his unique musical background.
Growing up on the streets of South Central, Los Angeles, Autumn In June’s childhood was saturated by violence, gang culture and a community revere for rap music. Despite this, Autumn In June took a leap of faith and began to experiment with an array of music to which his peers were aggressively opposed. It was at this point that his local community gave him the name of Autumn In June as they considered him to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Despite the often-negative criticism he received Autumn In June embraced this title and decided to continue to make the kind of music that he truly loved and to inspire other people to be proud of who they are. Consequently, Autumn In June is positioned as one of the few, if not the first, indie-pop artist to emerge from South Central, Los Angeles.
The release of Autumn In June’s debut EP resulted in significant media attention and features in highly acclaimed publications such as NME. Building upon this success, Autumn In June began to perform a number of live shows in the L.A region, drawing an increasing crowd with each performance.
As this momentum grows he is developing an ever more refined image and identity that is attracting people into what his fans call “Autumn’s Family”. This name reflects the artist’s promotion of inclusivity and the empowerment of people to be whoever they wish to be.
