Pushin' Against A Stone
I first heard Valerie June on Giles Peterson show on 6Music and I immediately had to investigate further leading me to the Pushin' Against A Stone album which has co -writing credits with Dan Auerbach from the Black Keys and Booker T Jones who also plays on the recording. The album is a real melting pot of different styles, soul, country, bluegrass and blues and well worth seeking out. The guitar on the title track makes me think of Big Brother and the Holding Company's version of Summertime, no bad thing.
