Teens Self-Produce New Release at Home to Encourage and Provide Young Adults Unity and Grounding During Global Pandemic
Brother-sister duo, Juna N Joey, has released a 5-track EP, titled COVID Covers. Released on River Run Records, the dynamic 5-track EP features cover songs and the young duo’s re-imaginings of recordings “Six Feet Apart” by Luke Combs, “Even Though I’m Leaving” by Luke Combs, “All by Myself” by Eric Carmen and re-recorded by Celine Dion, “Solitaire” by The Carpenters, and “Thank You” by Dido. Each track presents unity in the midst of the pandemic. Despite the global situation, Juna N Joey are delivering fans music that evokes positivity and an escape.
The duo spoke about the release, saying “The last few months have been incredibly hard for so many people, including our friends, many of who are teens. We wanted to produce a project that we could dedicate to those around us who have faced letdowns these last few months. From missed graduations, proms, sports seasons, college visits, and more. We hope that these songs can shed a little light on a time that has been very dim.”
COVID Covers is now available on all digital streaming platforms. In accordance with CDC guidelines and state laws, Juna N Joey recorded the five tracks while in West Palm Beach, Fla. from their home studio. The EP is self-produced by Juna and Joey, and was mixed/mastered by their 18-year old lead guitarist Dylan Thomas.
Building on their YouTube success, the West Palm Beach, Fla. natives had an exciting 2019. DreamWorks TV asked Juna N Joey to participate in the NETFLIX original, Spirit Riding Free, by offering their rendition of Keith Urban’s “Somebody Like You” for the show. Additionally, the duo took their songwriting skills to Nashville, Tenn., where they co-wrote their first single, “Stay Young.” The single caught the attention of Release Radar on Spotify and Country Radio, earning them an offer to open for American Idol alum’s Cade Foehner on his Southern Hallelujah Tour before they could even begin promoting the song. Juna N Joey also joined the Gratitude Tour, spending the summer performing for Michael Rouse’s ESF camps. Listen to “Stay Young” HERE.
As brother and sister turned singer/songwriters, Juna N Joey’s popularity first exploded when they began posting musical covers and originals on YouTube. With their smooth harmonies and combined skills ranging from playing the guitar, piano, keyboard, and saxophone, their talent stands up among some of the industry’s most seasoned artists and musicians.
One of their more recent projects, “Anchor,” is a song focused on anti-bullying inspired by a school friend that battled with self-harm and suicidal thoughts as a result of bullying. Juna N Joey partnered with anti-bullying organizations, including Teach Anti Bullying, and with video networks, such as The Heartland TV Network and The Country Network, to feature their song and continue spreading awareness.
