Zeta June is a Psychedelic Dance-Rock band formed in 2011 by Ian Crawford (Guitar, Vocals) Porter Hand (Lead Vocals/Guitar/Keys), Mitch Hruby (Bass, Synthesizer), and Cody Kuhens (Percussion, Vocals). The transcendent group seamlessly brings together genres as diverse as melodic rock, fusion, funk, progressive rock, classic rock, hip hop and jazz. The Colorado-based quartet has shared the stage with some incredible acts such as The Floozies, Dopapod, Future Rock, Euforquestra, John Wayne & The Pain, Yak Attack and The Jauntee to name a few. Having received bids to music festivals such as Camp Euforia, 515 Alive, Jammin’ On The Wolf, 80/35 Music Festival and Summer Camp Music Festival three consecutive years, and they show no signs of slowing down.
The band has minted themselves into the boisterous Colorado music scene since their relocation from Iowa City to Denver in 2014. Their music melds genres and styles, creating a hard-charging, often melodic fusion that they dub, Psychedelic Dance Rock. Zeta June consecrates the ground on which dance music meets free-form improvisation. The result is sophisticated yet accessible dance music with the ability to react instantaneously to the atmosphere of a room. Their self-titled album released in 2013 was a breakthrough in capturing the essence of Zeta June’s entrancing live shows. It’s thoughtfully composed work with captivating hum-along melodies that allow the recorded versions to reflect the group’s adventurous improvisations on stage. The 10-song album spans ethereal textures, imaginative drumming, labyrinthine arrangements and fiery solos.
The band has been working on writing and recording their second album. The new album is being recorded and produced by Josh Fairman (Analog Son, Kinetix) at Scanhope Sound in Littleton, Colorado. The album has shown tremendous growth from within the band’s sound from their debut album. Each track recorded for the upcoming album sounds drastically different from the next and demonstrates strong and dynamic songwriting. Zeta June’s follow up album is scheduled for a 2017 release.
