June Caravel is a vocal explorer. Vocal because she didn’t hesitate to do an entire album with only her voice as instrument: The A Cappella Sessions. Explorer because she‘s always developing new ways of making, recording and promoting music.
In 2007 thanks to Sellaband and 684 generous believers from all over the world she raised $50,000 and recorded her first album And Maybe A Tree Will Rise Out Of Me... in Weed, California under her former artist name T-ka. The soul-pop record was produced by Sylvia Massy (Prince, Skunk Anansie) and supported by a crowd of hugely talented musicians: guitarist Jeff Pevar (Ray Charles, Crosby Stills & Nash), drummer Stevie D (David Gilmour, Crosby Stills & Nash), bassist Tibo Barbillon (Nouvelle Vague) and horn-player Bill Holloman (Nile Rodgers, Diana Ross). She then moved to London in 2009 and after seeing Bobby McFerrin & Richard Bona live, she discovered the limitless possibilities offered by the human voice and decided to try her hand at A Cappella singing. She started experimenting new songs and her loop pedal and soon became June Caravel.
To promote her new album The A Cappella Sessions, she decided to go Busking in Australia. She had only busked about an hour in London before. June’s goal: only survive off donations people give her in the street while singing. Not only did she survive 2 months but she also filmed it and produced an online series.
After that June went back to good old Europe and settled in Hanover, Germany in September 2012 and started exploring yet another way to do concerts by performing at the homes of guests and fans between Germany and The Netherlands. In February 2013 she won the Hanover city prize “Kre(h)tiv”. June moved back to Paris in October 2014 but is honouring Hanover by preparing a song and a video about the city in French which will be released in 2015…
