Sisters June Elizabeth and Jean Yolanda Millington were born in the Philippine capital Manila, where their father, a US Navy lieutenant, was stationed at the time. Due to the work of their father, the family, which already had seven children (three of them girls), moved to Sacramento (California) in 1961. Here June and Jean went to school and began to develop a love for music that would eventually prove to be a lifelong one. While in high school, the sisters began playing weekends wherever they could, first as a duet, and later with two high school friends as part of the all-female quartet The Svelts. The Svelts went through countless line-up changes, but as members of the band, June and Jean gained attention and gained professional experience playing clubs and discotheques on the West Coast and in Nevada. June left the group for some time for elementary medical courses, but at the end of 1968 June and Jean decided to dedicate themselves to music definitively. They changed their name from "The Svelts" to "Wild Honey" and played all over the West, driving around in a painted used van. One day in 1969 Wild Honey was playing outdoors at Doug Weston's Troubadour Club in Hollywood. Secretary of the famous producer Richard Perry was among the audience this evening. Later, he convinced Perry that he should listen to this girl group. Perry (at the time a big man at Warner Brothers Records) auditioned Wild Honey and was so impressed that he spoke to the head of Warner Bros. himself.
