Valerie June

  • SOPAC 1 SOPAC Way South Orange, NJ, 07079 United States (map)

Valerie June’s astonishing and singular sound is a blend of rural Roots and Country that bridges Alan Lomax’s acoustic field recordings with biting, electric Indie-Blues. The singer-songwriter’s voice percolates somewhere between Dolly Parton and Billie Holiday. It is a stop-you-dead-in-your-tracks kind of voice, the kind that grips your imagination and paints her Southern portraits in vivid detail.

Opening Act: Anthony D’Amato
