She wowed us -- as well as NPR, Rolling Stone, Afropunk, and others -- last year with her terrific release Pushin' Against a Stone. "You Can't Be Told" and "Workin' Woman Blues" in particular got heavy airplay here. If you can't picture her sound yet, this Tennessee native fits somewhere between Dolly Parton and Billie Holiday, with a powerful electrified indie-blues groove. Tune in for Valerie June with Joe Kendrick this Tuesday.
