Photo Gallery: June IND records ‘Come to Hand’ at REC Room Recording

In addition to a couple of months of planning, it took 44 days from recording to release of June IND’s unplugged version of “Come to Hand,” a popular song from bandmates Chris June and Emily Larimer’s former group Chemcoma.

Recorded in “about three takes each” according to vocalist, guitarist Chris June, the Lafayette, Indiana rock band (including vocalist, percussionist Emily Larimer and special guest vocalist, violinist Justice Fuller) was joined by photographer Dave Mason (ISPhotographic) and engineer Neil McTavish at REC Room Recording. Mason and McTavish captured the recording session in picture and sound, respectively.

Older, but new: Hello, again, June IND’s ‘Come to Hand’

Today’s a big day for June IND, with Chris June and Emily Larimer set to release “Come to Hand,” a remade track from their days in the band Chemcoma.

The new rendition, the first from June IND since their “First Annual Meeting of Optimists” series in 2019 and 2020, was recorded to mark the 10th anniversary of the last show of their heavier Chemcoma. Older for sure, wiser most likely, June and Larimer recorded with Lafayette’s Justice Fuller on backing vocals and violin on this one.

June IND marks ten years since Chemcoma’s farewell show, releases “Come to Hand” featuring Justice Fuller

Ten years ago, our pre-June IND band Chemcoma rang out its last note at the Mosey Down Main Street in Downtown Lafayette, Indiana. No one has heard us play any of those songs since… until today.

With the blessing of our old pal Cody, we re-recorded an unplugged version of the Chemcoma fave, “Come to Hand” featuring our friend Justice Fuller on violin and vocals.

If you’re still with us down here… we’re also using the “Come to Hand” recording experience as a dry run for pumping out more new music during this pandemic mess. There are still seven unreleased First Annual Meeting of Optimists tracks that we need to put inside your ears. Stay tuned.

P.S. We offered to plug Cody’s cool, new band, but he didn’t think it was necessary. Anyway, if you want to look them up, it rhymes with Fight Likes In. 😘😘

 

Clock’s ticking, let’s crank up more June IND streams for Food Finders

June IND (with special guest Justice Fuller) performs an unplugged streaming show to raise funds for Food Finders Food Bank.

Clock’s ticking, let’s crank up more June IND streams for Food Finders

There are two really important things on the June IND to-do list for the morning of Thursday, October 1, 2020:

  • We’re going to calculate how many sales, streams and tips we had for September.
  • We’re going to send all of that money to Food Finders Food Bank.

We’d like to make that amount as large as possible and could use a hand (or ears):


Three minutes, a dollar or five will be supporting Food Finders’s efforts to provide food for people in need and to educate, advocate, and address food insecurity in North Central Indiana.

If you can help make our music work for the community, the links are between the lines above.

You can also donate directly to Food Finders and sign up to volunteer here:

Thank you.

About Shirley Martin Scholarship for Young Songwriters

The Shirley Martin Scholarship for Young Scholarship is sponsored by the Songwriters Association of Mid-North Indiana, or SAMI. Named in memory of one of SAMI’s first members, the scholarship is an opportunity for young songwriters to bring their creative voices to a panel of seasoned songwriters for critique, guidance, and encouragement. An award of $500 to be used toward the songwriter’s musical endeavors is awarded to the first place winner, while other recognitions within the contest are first runner-up, second runner-up, and the Mike Lane Horizon award. More than just a contest, though, the Shirley Martin Scholarship is an opportunity for young people to make connections and build their songwriting skill and knowledge, and to enter the songwriting community through the members and supporters of SAMI.
