08 Dec Pushin’ Against A Stone – Valerie June
I first discovered Valerie June in the video above. While perusing the interweb, as I do, I cam across pictures of her and thought her locs were really great so I looked up who she was. When I heard her voice I was immediately intrigued, it sounded so unique and I would have never guessed it would sound the way it did. She describes her music as “organic roots moonshine music” which seems to be a perfect description. It’s a combination of soul, blues, country . . and I’m sure several genres. She is one of my favorite musical discoveries this year . . . .and I might have to borrow her for a painting lol.
Her album is on itunes and anywhere else you buy music.
