Valerie June – Workin’ Woman Blues

Valerie June’s Blues/Soul/Roots sound is rather out of place in today’s world, but that shouldn’t detract from her raw talent and the quality of her her debut single Workin’ Woman Blues. The Tennessee native

was bought up on a healthy diet of Gospel and despite only learning to play the guitar at 22 it sounds like she’s been perfecting her trade since the Prohibition-era, where her music would probably be more at home. Nonetheless, Workin’ Woman Blues brilliantly brings together June’s crooning southern accent with the guitar, drums and trumpet , that it doesn’t matter what year it should belong to. All that matters is that really does work.

Workin’ Woman Blues is taken from the album Pushin’ Against A Stone, due for release in May 2013. The single is out now though and can be bought at Rod Da Bank’s Sunday Best Records, where she’s signed.
