Tyler Baker – BGV, Guitar

Who writes the songs?
We all write the songs.

How did you start?
We all are first cousins and had always wanted to do music together. I think after Shane (Tyler’s brother) passed it really opened our eyes that none of us really have a lot of time here so let’s do what we love while we can.

Where are you based?
Nashville, TN.

Please give an example of your music writing process?
Usually we all get in a room, Landon or Brandon hop on a kit and the others get guitars or bass and we start jamming as a three piece. Sometimes we write all the music and then focus on lyrics melody. Other times one of us might present a more complete idea and the others chime in and make it a Goodbye June song.

What are you working on right now?
Beginning to think about LP2 but really focusing on touring to support Magic Valley.

Milbourn – Fender Jag / Gibson J45 TV —> Trex Soulmate –> Mesa F50

How would you describe your music genre?
Bluesy, gritty, Rock and roll, no frills, no schticks.

Do you know any music theory?
Limited, mostly everything by ear.

What are your plans for the future?
Tour tour tour.

How did you get into music?
We got into music at a pretty early age because most of our family was involved in the church somehow. Be it a music minister, pastor, or whatever we were playing music in church at an early age. It was a sin to listen to rock music (Tyler’s parents were a little more lenient) but we would sneak off in our rooms and listen to bands like Bush, Metallica, Nirvana.

What are you listening to at the moment?
Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Brandon Flowers, Sturgill Simpson, Brent Cobb.

Who are your top 5 influences and icons?
Zeppelin, Creedence, Leon Russell, Hank Williams Jr, Kings Of Leon.
