Pushin' Against A Stone

Valerie June - Pushin' Against A Stone

Valerie June's debut album brings together the talents of acclaimed producers Kevin Augunas (Edward Sharpe, Florence + The Machine), Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys, and Peter Sabak, along with an all-star cast of musicians ranging from Booker T. and Jimbo Mathis to some of Hungary's top session players. It was recorded in Nashville, Van Nuys, CA, and Budapest.

June, whose voice percolates somewhere between Dolly Parton and Billie Holiday, wrote or co-wrote all but one of the record's 11 tracks, blending rural roots, country, rock, and blues into an astonishing and singular sound that bridges Alan Lomax and Jack White.
