June Madrona – A Long and Ugly Road
Recorded in a yurt next to chickens and a fountain. The song subjects vary from making out in the back of a car on the freeway, to drinking (just a little) too much, to feeling scared and hopeless after waking up to thunder rolling past you in the middle of the night. A broad range of emotions have been covered here, and they have all been written about quite eloquently. The simple stories within are the ones that, for many of us, often end up feeling the most important.
June Madrona – Battlegrounds
This is the fourth June Madrona album. It features Micah Ellison on melodica and Danielle Chiero on flute, and explores themes of family and place. This lineup takes June Madrona’s composition to a new level, as Micah and Danielle are both classically trained musicians. The songwriting is as articulate and powerful as ever, and the musical accompaniment lends a gravity and fullness never before heard in June Madrona.
June Madrona – Isabelle's Paintings and Two Fantasies

The record itself has been pressed on heavy 70-gram, forest green vinyl, with deluxe matte-finished gate-fold jacket.
June Madrona – Lions Of Cascadia
Cascadia is a dream. Before America, before the explorers came and renamed all of the mountains and the rivers, borders were formed by communities and histories were written in the heart.

Lions of Cascadia tells the stories of the destruction and rebirth of our communities, our friendships, and our bodies.
