With their first release on Organic Records, acoustic trio Red June marks their entry into the national Folk DJ-L Chart with the #1 song, “Ancient Dreams” the #3 album on the seventy-position chart, Ancient Dreams, and the #5 position for overall artist for the month of May. With 133 national and international reporting DJs, and over 1300 spins for this new release, Red June’s new album Ancient Dreams is connecting with listeners all over the world.
Red June singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Will Straughan thanks radio programmers for the support: “Big thanks to the deejays for taking the time to listen to Ancient Dreams and for all the spins. We’re proud of all 11 tracks on this record, and it’s definitely great to have the support of our label [Organic Records] and the radio promotion [Kari Estrin] to help get the Red June name and sound out there.”
Organic Records released the album in late April and it was through the partnership and great work of Kari Estrin Promotions and DJs everywhere that allowed for the success of the album.
