Junia is an indie alt-rock music collective, with heavy Motown, soul, art rock, and pop influences, based in Toronto, ON. Junia is what happens when a group of friends who don’t take themselves very seriously, find each other and can’t stop making music.
Their latest EP "My Favourite People" is set for release on August 4th, 2015, and will feature 5 brand new songs. The first single off this EP is "Education" released on July 21, 2015.
The core of the band, consisting of Amy Towers on lead vocals, Joel Wilson on drums, and David Siekanowicz on guitar, has been writing songs together since 2011, and performing live with musical contributions from friends. They have also enjoyed success on YouTube, with 300,000+ views on their channel that features original music as well as acoustic covers.
Now they've embarked on a journey trying to create music between work, play, life, death, love, loss and this mess we've made of our lives figuring out where we fit in this grand plan between the Creator and the rest of creation.
Their strength does not lie in having a cohesive mindset and focused sound they can all agree on, but rather a shared vision of what they dislike about other music. Its not that they know what they want their music to sound like, but they know exactly what they don't want to sound like.
