Graffiti Vibe Introduces 'Wordsbyjuni'
“Favourite Machine” tells a love story between one man and his laptop.
Let’s be honest, is there any person that knows you better than your personal computer? From entertainment to education, prayer to porn, these devices give us access to everything we could possibly want and more. Maybe that’s why we spend most of our waking lives on them. Maybe that’s why modern dating has become so complicated.
After all, who needs a man when you can have a machine?
Wordsbyjuni is a British singer-songwriter, based in Toronto. Armed with a knack for telling stories, a love for hip-hop, and (thanks to his white friends), a newfound interest in the indie alternative scene, juni’s songs tend to be poppy ballads about how he doesn’t like it when his romantic interests are vain and don’t listen to him, how his ex was selfish sometimes, and how his mum used to catch him smoking weed in the shower (not necessarily in that order.)
So it’s pretty obvious that juni is a really, really cool guy. But can he do the music? Well, to date, juni has worked with, performed with, and/or lived with artists like Berhana, Clay and Friends, Claire Ridgely, Craig David, Fleece, J Ember, Nate Husser, Oscar Louis, Raleigh Ritchie, and then some. So it's true when they say that you’re the product of the five people you chill with the most, theoretically speaking juni is pretty talented!
Though mostly a lone-riding songwriter these days, juni's had a hand in several other successful endeavors. His music from a previous project called adhoc has been featured in Comedy Central's Broad City, and he is currently active on a side-project called Kashmir Winter with bffl and frequent collaborator Edwin Raphael. (Honestly he does a lot of the heavy lifting on that project, but it’s nice to have Edwin along for the ride.)
Juni’s goals for the year include releasing music more often, learning guitar, and figuring out what the deal with TikTok is. He’s also trying to get better at taking phone calls.
