Valerie June, the Memphis based singer songwriter who has made waves and turned heads with her mix of a variety of American music styles, put on a soul performance at Saturn Birmingham in Birmingham, Alabama on March 3rd. June was in town as part of a tour to build hype and anticipation for the release of her album, "The Order of Time", which gets a full release on March 10th.
Going into the show, my only knowledge of June and her work was listening to her 2013 album, "Pushin' Against a Stone". Her unique voice and timeless style really got my attention and upped the anticipation for seeing what she could do live and in person.
From what I saw of June on the star adorned stage, I was not disappointed and neither was the crowd in Birmingham. We all got to witness a great performer and talented musician entertianing us on a Friday night, just a week before her latest collection of songs is released into the world.
I look forward to listening to "The Order of Time" when it is released and seeing how big a leap June will take when people get to see what all she put into it.
