June Hawthorn


Formerly serenading the local music scene under the name of SoyJoy, Juniper Lee (they/them) is continuing their mischievous, musical endeavors under the new name of June Hawthorn. Their songs navigate healing from heartbreak from queer lovers and global imperialist systems, and are intended to be seeds of hope for alternative worlds to the ones imposed on us today. They released a debut album, “breaker” in May earlier this year of 2024; written, recorded and produced on their homelands of southern Korea. They are of mixed Korean and European descent and have lived and created on unceded Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh land since 2019.
