Never miss another 'Valerie June' show
Valerie June follows her recent support of Jake Bugg with the announcement of more live UK dates in May.
After a mesmerising performance of her debut single 'Workin' Woman Blues' on BBC's Later… With Jools Holland last November, Valerie releases the new single from her highly anticipated forthcoming debut album 'Pushin' Against A Stone' on March 4th. The single 'You Can't Be Told' is another insight into her world of beautiful vintage country, gospel and powerful delta blues.
If Valerie June had been a roots artist in America 80 years ago, and she often sings as if she was, she might have been a principle influence on today's myriad retro troubadours, hers a stunningly emotive amalgamation of blues, folk, gospel, soul, Appalachian and bluegrass (including irresistible banjo). Like a potent distillation bubbling on a Prohibition-era porch, Valerie June makes self-styled “organic moonshine roots music”, music for the porch parties of today, a party where she strums her guitar, plucks her banjo, opens her mouth and delta-blues-country stridently sashays out, a stunning peal somewhere between Dolly Parton and Billie Holiday.
