Juno is an insanely talented guitarist and songwriter with her debut album called Help is Not on the Way. Having worked with some big names including Bruno Mars, Camila Cabello, Fifth Harmony, Erykah Badu, India Arie and more, this new album hits a very personal note.

We talk about how Juno had some preconceived notions of how an album should be in terms of songwriting and production, but our current challenging times threw all that out the window and it worked out for the better.
