Unbound Entertainment Group is pleased to announce JUNNY‘s first-ever North America tour!
JUNNY debuted in 2017 with his single, “Thank You” under Mauve Company. Since then, the Korean-Canadian singer-songwriter gained a strong following for his musical abilities across all areas of composing, writing, and performing, making him one of the most sought-after talents in the industry. Notably, JUNNY caught the eye of BTS’ Jungkook, who expressed his love for the artist by singing, “By My Side,” in a past VLive livestream. JUNNY has also received love calls from top entertainment companies and artists and composed music for the likes of NCT, IU, EXO’s BAEKHYUN, KAI, SUHO, and more. His recent release, “Color Me” featuring CHUNG HA, is yet another testament to his collaborative ingenuity.
Now, JUNNY continues to make strides as an artist, revealing his distinct musical color through his own releases and covers. He is set to expand his discography with his upcoming full-length album, blanc. The album was inspired by JUNNY’s thoughts on how he is influenced by those he spends his time with, resembling a blank canvas that absorbs many different colors. With this project, he hopes to show the colors of his early and mid-twenties, with each track going back in time to explore JUNNY’s past experiences in chronological order. blanc is a farewell to his youth and a look into how the artist plans to live his life moving forward.
The “blanc” Tour kicks off on September 4 at 1720 in Los Angeles followed by stops in San Francisco, Seattle, Vancouver, Calgary, Dallas, Houston, Atlanta, Toronto, Brooklyn, and Montreal. The 11-city tour across the United States and Canada serves as a clear testament to the 26-year-old’s exponential growth as an emerging artist in the global music scene.

JUNNY immigrated to Vancouver when he was four, where he developed a passion for music during his childhood. Growing up, he listened to Korean music with his two older brothers as well as foreign hip-hop, rock, R&B, and folk music, forming his appreciation for the art form regardless of genre. He had dreams of becoming a musician and began playing guitar and singing throughout middle school and high school.
During high school, JUNNY saved enough money to invest in equipment to create music, pursuing his dreams earnestly. He began to gain attention for his music which he uploaded on YouTube and SoundCloud, which fueled his motivation further. He decided to move to Korea when he was 23-years-old in hopes of becoming an artist.
JUNNY has since become one of the most in-demand soloists, gaining attention for his composition, song-writing, and performing skills. He has collaborated with the likes of ph-1, JAY B, and more. His Spotify sees more than 1.3 million monthly listeners while the music video for his latest release, “Color Me” featuring CHUNG HA, has surpassed 128, 000 views on YouTube.
