In 2013, singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Valerie June released her major label debut album, Pushin’ Against a Stone. June immediately caught the attention of roots fans for her fresh take on blues, folk, soul, gospel, country and bluegrass.

Hailing from Memphis, Tennessee, June is one of the most extraordinary artists around, reworking traditional music into something entirely unique.

Her new release, The Order of Time, sees June furthering her exploration of disparate sounds. As PopMatters reports:

The Order of Time continues June’s fusion of a diverse set of influences into a modern eclectic style. The title defines the album’s driving force as time and the joys, heartbreaks, and pain one naturally encounters in life. Lyrics explore those elements, and June’s unique vocals stands as strong as on her debut, but the rhythmic background and integration of a strong series of organ performances creates a sonic quality for time that personifies the album’s theme.
