Finding the courage to speak your truth is the theme of New Jersey singer-songwriter Jackie June’s debut release, “All the Colors,” and a guiding principle of her life.

Her music incorporates eclectic influences, ranging from Michelle Branch and Lady Gaga to Adele and Nick Fradiani. Jackie’s biggest musical inspiration, Hanson, speaks to her gift for seeing the value within. The trio of brothers, dismissed as a one-hit wonder after “MMMBop,” have made a successful indie career as serious songwriters. “Their music got me through a lot of hard times as a teenager,” she recollects. “They’re the reason I love music so much.”
Jackie’s own lyrics come from personal experience. “I want to make sure that what I write is something I know I would listen to,” she explains. "I try to start with a catchy hook and then put a unique spin on relatable topics."

Her debut single, “All the Colors,” motivates listeners to push through their struggles and live their truth. The piano ballad, written with Jackie’s vocal coach Jes Hudak, was inspired by the Find Your Color social media project, which told the stories of people conquering depression and social anxiety.
Her eagerly awaited new release, “Chasing Nightmares,” written with Jes Hudak and produced by Jamie McClanahan of Audio Faktory, takes a witty, upbeat approach to empowerment that will have you dancing away your fears. Fans can also look forward to a future full EP and new live performance dates.

Rory D'Lasnow
Rory D’Lasnow is a singer-songwriter from New Jersey. From the first time his father brought out his guitar to comfort Rory as a baby, it was clear that a lifelong relationship with music was being forged. Though he initially feared the sound of the instrument, Rory soon picked up his father’s right handed guitar upside down and backwards and began to craft original songs. Bred on equal parts Lennon and McCartney, The Everly Brothers, Billy Joel, and Queen, Rory honed his ability over talent competitions and showcases throughout his youth. Despite never turning the guitar right side up, Rory began to cultivate a sound that would propel him on to playing such well-respected venues as Kenny’s Castaways and PIANOS in New York City, Debonair Music Hall, and The Stanhope House - opening for American Idol winner, Lee DeWyze. He is also slated to open for internationally recognized actor and musician Drake Bell this February. In 2011, Rory released his first studio EP, “When All Is Fading”, a sincere and passionate debut that gracefully grapples with the universal themes of love and loss. He followed it up four years later with his second release, “Acoustic”, his most raw and evocative effort to date.
