ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Grant June knows his way around a pop hook. In fact, as a guitarist & songwriter, he has already released 5 albums with his Rock/Powerpop band 89 Mojo. With "Free For The Giving", however, Grant seems to come out of a number of shells. Besides handling all the vocals, guitars & bass on the album, he also pushes his lyrical boundaries by tackling matters of faith and life and our place in all of it. When most artists find a new "creative direction", it's safe to assume that you'll see little to no resemblance of that artist's previous work. In Grant's case you'll find that his signature hook-filled, radio-friendly melodies shine even brighter. And while he may be speaking of both the joys and struggles of the Christian heart, it is presented in a very real, honest, non-preachy way that makes it accessible to any fan of rock and pop music. And as the title suggests, Grant is giving away this recording, meaning all sales will go directly to charities.

Kenosha News - Jan. 4, 2013 - by Dan Pavelich

Grant June's "Free For The Giving" is worth every penny
It’s always fun to review an album by a local artist, and in the almost nine years that I’ve been doing this column, I’ve probably reviewed at least a hundred.

Grant June’s “Free for The Giving,” however, is far and away the best sounding of ’em all. I was immediately blown away by the high quality of the recording. It turns out the whole thing was recorded right here in Kenosha, at Skies Fall Studios and Renwood Messenger Studios. Major kudos to both businesses.

You may know Grant June as the resident guitar slinger in 89 Mojo, one of our city’s hardest working bands. Given that band’s busy schedule, I’m surprised the guy even found time to get a project like this off the ground. “Free for The Giving” pushes beyond the power pop of 89 Mojo, showing off keen hair-metal guitar flourishes and bridges that are catchy enough to be choruses on their own.

June’s voice is friendly and warm, with a familiarity that is instantly comfortable. “First Things First” and “The Other 167” are great car songs, and will undoubtedly lift your spirits. “Give You Me” is a beautiful acoustic ballad, accented with pretty vibraphone fills and shakers. It might be an ode to June’s wife or acknowledgement of a higher power. The album concludes with my favorite track, “Maybe It’s Me,” which also features guest vocals by 89 Mojo’s Al Schroeder. Its handclaps and “Na na na” refrain make it irresistible. It’s one of those songs that hits your ears and takes up residence in your brain. You just can’t stop singing it to yourself.

If you purchase “Free for The Giving,” which conveniently happens to be for sale at this column’s sponsor, CD-DVD-Games Warehouse, you can also feel good about the fact that all of the proceeds are going to support food banks and other non-profits. Support this artist!
