Sarah Rudy of Hello June has lived a lifetime of loss in the five years since the band’s previous album, <em>Spruce</em>. The band’s latest, <em>Artifact</em>, is the post-COVID album for those of us who spent lockdown doing more than bake bread. These songs are world-weary and resolved, clear-eyed in the face of difficulty. In our interview, Rudy explains her drive to create, how it’s linked to her identity, and the artists who got her here.
