10 Mar CLASH: Shake Down: Clash Meets Valerie June
Valerie June is a striking proposition.
Those long dreads are tied up Medusa-style, a humble yet confident persona that builds towards that voice, that unmistakeable voice.
Breakthrough album ‘Pushin’ Against A Stone’ was an international success, with Valerie seeming to sit at a junction between bluegrass and soul, between something modern and something timeless.
A hectic period of touring followed, before the Memphis artist settled down to work on fresh material.
New album ‘The Order Of Time’ is out now, and it’s a fresh, sparkling return from an artist whose honesty is something to be cherished.
