June McDoom recently told Byline a bit about her musical origin story. “I think I decided to go to school in New York because I knew that eventually I’d want to start making my own music. And I think truthfully, I got a little burnt out making jazz,” she explained. “Jazz is obviously very collaborative… I think as a response to studying jazz for so long, I was like, ‘Okay, what can I make totally from my own brain, with no other influence from anyone else? Let me think about exactly the things that I like, and see what I can create from that.’”
