Valerie June

 

She is one of Bob Dylan’s favorite artists, she has a unique and charming style blending ancient folk to modern indie music, and her delicate and sweet voice sounds like heaven. I saw Valerie June this summer at Santa Monica pier during one of the Twilight Concert Series, and she definitely put a spell on the entire beach,… the night was already beautiful and unusually warm but this woman has a gift, she would bring soul to the dullest place on earth. When she heard that Dylan had mentioned her among his personal picks, she declared to Rolling Stone: ‘My biggest gift, I feel, is songwriting. So to have the god of songwriting mention he was listening to my music is huge. I never went to college, so I felt like when he mentioned my name, I got my degree that day.’

After two albums, Valerie June has just released a gorgeous acoustic version of ‘With you-A Sweet Little Love Song’, a song which originally appears on her critically acclaimed album, ‘The Order of Time’, released earlier this year. The new version is as eerie as it is subtle, with her beautiful and versatile vocals over an acoustic guitar, June opens an entire world of wonder, and it’s very difficult not to be ravished by her gentle finger picking loops and delicate rendition of the song,… just listen to it below.

At the same time, she has embarked in a long tour, and after a few dates in Japan and Hawaii this month, she will have a list of West Coast dates this fall, followed by mid-west and east coast dates in 2018. Go see her, she is magical.
