Currently at the helm of a growing multimedia marketing company as President and CEO of ELEVEN28 ENTERTAINMENT, June Archer got his first exposure to the industry on the music scene behind the microphone. He soon realized that his dream would soon become a reality by successfully impacting the industry behind the scenes.
June’s name first emerged on the music scene in 1995 as a member of the Elektra Records recording group Room Service. The group achieved radio and video success with the singles “Ain’t Nothing Wrong” and “Stay”, but he realized it was the business that drove him. Shortly after the group disbanded in 2000, June reconnected with executives and mentors who previously guided him while in the group and he gained insight into the business of music. These experiences solidified June’s conviction that having an undeniable impact on the entertainment industry was his calling. "For me, making the transition from Artist to Executive is a dream fulfilled. Having been an artist, I can educate up-and-coming artists, producers and songwriters on what to expect from the industry. As an executive, I can help institute the kind of change that will benefit both sides.”
June also recognized that developing new opportunities and being innovative was important as well. As creator of the New England's #1 music and entertainment showcase "Hot Chocolate Soul", June developed a platform for emerging artists in Music, Comedy & Poetry to develop their craft while entertaining the community. This was a platform with which he was not afforded as an up and coming artist. June has added the credit of Executive Producer to his name with the reality shows “The Docu-Tape” and “Behind the Unsigned”. Both shows debuted on Fuse.TV. He also co- produced motivational pre-game content for Sunday NFL Countdown on ESPN for the 2013-2014 season. In addition, he has added the title Author to his accomplishments. June is sharing his keys to success with the world in his debut book, “Yes!
