CL RECOMMENDS
CL Critic Hal Horowitz Recommends: Memphis born and bred, now Brooklyn based, June has a creaky voice, idiosyncratic folk roots songs, and enough wild, Medusa-styled braids to attract attention, which she has effectively done in the Americana genre. Her dreamy, atmospheric folk/soul/gospel style and girlish vocals connect by floating and hovering rather than going for the kill. This is a rare local appearance for the singer and the prefect venue for absorbing her subtle, laconic approach. — HH

ABOUT THE SHOW

The latest full-length from Valerie June, The Moon and Stars: Prescriptions for Dreamers emerged from a long-awaited revelation on the part of the Tennessee-bred singer/songwriter. “With this record, it finally became clear why I have this dream of making music,”June says of her third album for Fantasy Records. “It’s not for earthly reasons of wanting to be awarded or to win anybody’s love-it’s because dreaming keeps me inquisitive and keeps me on that path of learning what I have to share with the world. I think when we allow ourselves to dream like we did when we were kids, it ignites the light that we all have within us, and helps us to have a sort of magic about the way we live.”

The follow-up to her widely adored The Order of Time-a 2017 effort that earned the admiration of Bob Dylan and landed on best-of-the-year lists from the likes of Rolling Stone and the New York Times- The Moon and Stars: Prescriptions for Dreamers is a potent catalyst for that kind of magic. With her spellbinding vocals and infectious sense of wonder, June gently eases the listener into a far more charmed state of mind, one that quickly restores a powerful feeling of joyful possibility.
