Over the past few months June has been working closely on a new song with Maltese producer and musician Robert Longo also known as the guitarist from Fire. Robert has taken Narcissism and produced, arranged and performed the guitar solos on this Gothic/Rock style song. In June's words, Robert is an outstanding guitarist and fine producer. He has been around musically for many years, performing live and producing studio recordings for many artists and his own band Fire. This new unreleased song entitled “Narcissism” (produced, arrange and guitar solos by Robert Logo) can be heard exclusively on the “Spirit of Rock Radio, The Friday Rock Show Tribute To Tommy Vance”, DJ’d by Andy Mead this Friday 3rd April 2015 between 10pm and midnight.

I was recently very honoured to be approached by producer/musician M2 of "M2 Musik Pub" who took my song “Mesmerised” and produced and remixed it for me. He has taken "Mesmerised" to a whole new dimension and I am delighted and extremely grateful for the finished result! M2 produces his own band Omnesia, based in Oakland, California.

Introducing you to my latest recorded song called “Mesmerised”. Mesmerised was written last year but I never quite got round to recording it and decided now would be a good time. When I wrote Mesmerised I always felt it was lacking something, something more powerful, some kind of punch, a heavy section, as it niggled away at me I decided to ask Chris Paterson (guitarist whom plays acoustic sets with me) if he would consider coming up with a heavy electric guitar part for the song. Chris very kindly accepted and Mesmerised was finally complete. I do hope you enjoy listening to Mesmerised as much as I enjoyed recording it. It was a lot of fun composing and working with Chris whom offered to add extra electric guitar parts to blend with my acoustic parts. He also laid down the bass in the heavy section too. I am very grateful and thankful that Chris became involved with this project and helped to complete the song. "Mesmerised" has been uploaded here to Reverbnation, please do feel free to tune in and listen by clicking on the play button from any of the links listed below. If you do enjoy, please feel free to share my links with your family and friends, it would be very much appreciated! Thank you for your time and I do hope that you enjoy! Stay safe and be happy always :) Direct link - http://www.reverbnation.com/c./poni/152574660 Music Page - http://www.reverbnation.com/junestevenson Website - http://www.junestevensonmusic.com With love June x

Hello dear friends,
I would like to begin by thanking you for your continued support and encouraging comments, I am very honoured to have so many lovely friends!
A have continued to receive messages regarding my new song “Energy” and how it came about. To answer your varies question I decided the best way forward would be to make a blog for everyone to read.
I spend some of my spare time enjoying the local beach and on one particular occasion (back in 2010) when I was out admiring the natural surroundings and walking along the sandy beach, I felt my feet sink into the sand and the lyrics evolved from there. For those of you reading this not familiar with the lyrics, I have included them within this blog.
A few months passed before the music took shape, then a few weeks later whilst on a business trip in England I decided to recorded the vocals and guitar live in a great empty hall, never travelling far without my guitar! I feel the acoustics bouncing from wall to wall speak for themselves within the recording and no effects on those parts were needed. The studio cut (which includes the live recording) however does include strings and drums to enhance the music.
For those still to experience “Energy” it can be heard at this link;
Energy lyrics: The sand gave beneath their feet The sea exhilarating in the heat Moon light skies, glimmers whilst waves sleep
The power of excitement pulsing through their veins Sweat and passion blending amid the fast flowing pace
Stopping for a breath as music filled the air His eyes held her smile reflecting all the while Could this be, really be, their energy.
Thank you again for your continued support! :) June x
