There are at least six artists known as Juno: 1. Juno is a hiphop artist from Finland. He raps about his own life and memories, about the things he misses, loves and regrets. His debut album: 13 was released on Yellowmic records in 2008. Now signed to Monsp Records, he has released two albums: V-Tyyli in January 2010 and J.K x 2 Tunti Terapiaa in October 2010. ''BB-Ikävä'' is the biggest hit of Finnish Juno. 2. JUNO is a Korean pop singer and actor who's recently debuted in Japan. In China he is known by the name ZUNO. He is a twin brother of 시아준수, member of the epic Korean group 동방신기, as well as JYJ. 3. Juno was an American indie rock band formed in Seattle in 1995. Juno released their debut album This Is the Way It Goes and Goes and Goes as a co-release on DeSoto Records and Pacifico Records on March 30, 1999. Their second album A Future Lived in Past Tense was released May 8, 2001 on Desoto Records. The band was critically acclaimed by various local and national music journals and has toured throughout the US, Europe and Japan.Review by Todd Kristel Opening with a brief moment of found sound, "A Thousand Motors Pressed Upon the Heart" slowly gains momentum as crisscrossing guitars are layered over a pumping organ. Arlie John Carstens' scratchy, Bob Mould-like vocals and the contributions of guest bassist Nick Harmer (Death Cab for Cutie) help push this three-guitar band to a harder rocking sound on the second song, "Covered With Hair," but after a slow guitar intro guides you into "When I Was in _____," it becomes clear that this intricately arranged and spacious-sounding album is as much about developing, sustaining, and then changing a mood as it is about individual songs. Indeed, A Future Lived in Past Tense doesn't feature an overabundance of memorable songs with catchy hooks that demand your immediate attention; instead, Juno methodically builds and envelops the listener with swelling, emotionally subtle textures of sound while Carstens sings his poetic, fragmented, and somewhat melancholic lyrics. For example, Carstens begins "The French Letter" with slow, restrained, and somewhat mournful vocals, then his singing becomes more expressive, and eventually he sounds like an unusually emotive Roger Waters fronting a punk band. After ten minutes of this song, it's tempting to think the band has finally settled into a groove for the rest of the album, but it's followed by "Up Through the Night," which is an instrumental, and then "Things Gone and Things Still Here (We'll Need the Machine-Guns by Next March)," which features spoken word vocals and sounds like a poetry reading from a space rock college radio show. Indeed, parts of this album may work best as atmospheric late-night music, particularly considering that brevity is not one of the key virtues of this 70-minute album. But as soon as the band seems to have drifted off into the ether, it punches out "You Are the Conductor of This Orchestra," a solid rocker that finishes in less than five minutes, then refines its Fugazi-meets-Lungfish sound in "Killing It in a Quiet Way," with a coda that maintains the song's momentum even though it stretches its running time close to the seven-minute mark. Then the album ends with another moment of found sound (preceded by a minute of silence). A Future Lived in Past Tense won't please listeners who want nonstop punk action or consistently sedate background music, but it has a lot to offer if you're willing to immerse yourself in it. 4. Juno is an 18yr old independent recording artist from Dallas,TX. His style of music is very difficult to categorize, his songs can be labeled from anywhere between rap, techno, electronica and even alternative. Juno has received recognition from the likes of many established musicians and his name has been bouncing around the blogosphere for about 2yrs now. Astonishingly enough his debut mixtape has YET to even drop. To stay posted on all things Juno; head on over to his Tumblr blog! -> http://listentojuno.tumblr.com/ 5. Juno is a funk/house band from Wellington, New Zealand. http://www.junoband.co.nz/ 6. Juno is an acoustic duo from Sydney, Australia, comprising of Gloria Jung and Lucie Vano, Gloria being the lead singer and Lucie as her acoustic guitar accompaniment. Juno has been playing together for three years now. Gloria started singing when she was 9 years old, and since then she has developed a beautiful singing voice. Accompanied by Lucie’s funky rhythmic guitar playing, this duo harmoniously compliment each other. Influenced by artists such as Amy Winehouse, Adele, John Mayer, Damien Rice and Bon Iver, Juno find inspiration in writing their own originals within the genre of acoustic, jazz, funk with a touch of RnB. With the desire to furthur develop their musical abilities using these inspirations, Juno are on their way to discover their own musical path. (http://www.facebook.com/junoacoustic)
