Juniper Rising

Juniper Rising


Young Brooklyn country sound finds rock with indie sensibilities. Front woman, Holly Overton, has the spirit of Loretta Lynn with a contemporary mentality. Lap steel sets the mood which compliments pumping bass and driving drums. You will have fun listening, we promise you that!


Formerly the psych 3pc American Sun, Holly and Diana began Juniper Rising to appease their hunger for making music. At a beautiful Summer beach gathering, they asked Andrew, formerly of Georgiana Starlington and K-Holes, to join.

Their appreciation for early country cross over musicians like Buck Owens and Waylon Jennings transcends into a new form with females holding the reigns as front woman drummer. Moody lap steel compliments the pumping bass while the strong voice of country legends weaves it together.


Juniper Rising formed in September and are plowing through the local Brooklyn scene.

Formerly American Sun, we self released a 7" distributed by Death Traitors, featured on cassette comp by Putah! Records, air play on WFMU by Brian Turner's request, performed live on WNYU, WHUS 97.1 in Connecticut, and had frequent air play on Northeast college radio.
