Yo Nashville: Valerie June - Workin' Woman Blues/Give Me Water Feat. John Forte
Feels Like: Robert Johnson's long lost granddaughter
Here's a twofer for your friday. Nashville (by way of Humboldt, Tennessee) resident Valerie June has a timeless voice and a knack for contemporary blues/soul songwriting. "Workin' Woman Blues" and "Give Me Water" are just two of her standouts, and pretty much everything I've heard from her is amazing. This is the kind of artist that needs to hook up with T-Bone Burnett and become a huge star, Enjoy your weekend!
