VOICES Notes and news on New Releases
15 AUG 13 DAVID VIENNA
Pushin' Against A Stone captures Valerie June's masterful sound, which deftly blends elements of folk, blues and other genres to create work both substantive and thoughtful. She recently visited the studio of NPR's The Current and played "You Can't Be Told," a cut from Pushin', so you can hear for yourself.
From the post at NPR.org: 'Tennessee native Valerie June feels a deep connection -- if not a responsibility -- to her home state's musical traditions, as she points to pioneers such as Memphis Minnie, Elvis Presley and Booker T. Jones. 'I have a lot to live up to, being from Memphis,' she says."
June's on tour now, so check her out and experience her special blend of genres live.
