June and Man

June and Man is vocalist/songwriter Lisa Forkish and guitarist/songwriter Patrick Anseth. We are June and Man. This is us in action:

 We are Oakland-based musicians and educators with a passion for story-telling and harmony-making. We have been playing music together since September 2006 when Patrick accompanied Lisa for her first audition while studying at Berklee College of Music. We graduated together in May 2010, moved to the Bay Area, got married and adopted two cats. Lisa, originally from the Pacific Northwest, and Patrick, originally from Norway, both love trees, rain, mountains, food, and striking up conversations with strangers. We're both grateful to live in sunny, temperate Oakland and to work with amazingly talented, hilarious, creative and inspiring students at Oakland School for the Arts where we are both full-time educators.

We hope you like the songs we write, the harmonies we sing and the silly faces we make. If you do, please consider supporting our music through Patreon and make sure to hook up with us on social media.
