David Dye, host of WXPN-FM's World Café, calls Valerie June a "radiant, genre-defying musician." Her old-timey and heartfelt vocal delivery drives her captivating live shows, as she embodies the characters in her Folk and Blues laments. Percolating somewhere between Dolly Parton and Billie Holiday, June’s voice grips your imagination and paints her Southern portraits in vivid detail.
The Tennessee native taught herself guitar, banjo, and ukulele, developing a distinctive style inspired by her heroes from a century before. “I really fell in love with 1920’s and 30’s music when I moved to Memphis,” says June. “Mississippi John Hurt, Elizabeth Cotten, The Carter Family. I have almost everything with Alan Lomax’s name on it. Once I discovered country blues and straight-up old time country, I never left it.”
