Music has always been an essential part of June Poole’s life, a form of expression and escapism. The Bay Area native grew up playing sports and had initially wanted to be a professional athlete, inspiring his first single, “Tom Brady.” It wasn’t until messing around with beats during summertime of the COVID Pandemic and watching his older cousin record in the studio that June became committed to a successful music career. So far he’s recorded over 20 songs including hits like “Blame Me”, “Like Its Nothin”, and “Westside.” When asked to describe his style and sound, he says it’s a mix of R&B and Pop-“I like to make music that’s fun. I get inspiration from artists like Chris Brown, Jeremih and Drake.”
The 21-year old’s inspiration comes from his family. Having grown up in Hayward, CA, he mentions that his loved ones have always been his biggest support system, particularly his parents and sisters. He says, “My family supports everything I do, so it’s only right that I make it happen for them.”
While many other artists find the Pandemic as a roadblock to their momentum, June has capitalized and really catapulted his career during the downtime. In October 2021, June opened up for Migos at a college homecoming in Colorado, a moment that changed June’s career and profile. Since then, he’s been staying busy on several projects including a collaboration with Clayton Williams from Empire Records and he’s worked on a track with Jemouri at Black Star Studios to name a few.
June Poole just dropped his newest single, “Red Flags” in honor of the recent red flag trend on social media.
