"I feel like my whole life I've always had a stone I've been pushing," says Valerie June, explaining the title of her debut, "Pushin' Against a Stone." Her music showcases her blend of rural roots and country that connects Alan Lomax's acoustic field recordings with biting, electric indie-blues. At one moment seductive in a sensual come-on, fragile and vulnerable the next in a display of naked honesty, Valerie June transports you to another world the moment you hear her voice.That voice was born in her rrual Tennessee church. Percolating somewhere between Dolly Parton and Billie Holiday, Valerie June's is a stop-you-dead-in-your-tracks voice, the kind that grips your imagination and paints her Southern songwriting portraits in vivid detail. She comes to Michigan with a new release, "The Order of Time." Valerie June wowed us at the Ann Arbor Folk Festival, came back to put on a power-house sold-out show at The Ark last spring, and now she's back at the Majestic Theatre. Co-presented by The Ark and AEG Live.
