Since the release of her 2013 breakout Pushin' Against A Stone, June has been patiently at
work in the garden of song, nurturing seedlings with love and care into the
lush bloom that is her stunning new album, The
Order Of Time. Some songs grew from seeds planted more than a decade ago, others
blossomed overnight when she least expected them to, but every track bears the
influence of time. See, time has been on June's mind a lot lately. It's
the only constant in life, even though it's constantly changing. It's the
healer of all wounds, the killer of all men. It's at once infinite and finite,
ever flowing with twists and turns and brutal, churning rapids that give way to
serene stretches of placid tranquility. Fight against the
current and it will knock you flat on your ass. Learn to read it, to speak its
language, and it will carry you exactly where you're meant to be.
"Time is the
ruler of Earth's rhythm," June explains. "Our daily lives revolve
around it. Our hearts beat along to its song. If we let it, it can be
a powerful guide to turning our greatest hopes and dreams into realities."
