01/17/11 Valerie June Sat On The Couch

Valerie June is the 2011 Memphis Blues Society representative for the International Blues Challenge (IBC).

A native Tennessean, Valerie has an incredible talent. Singer, guitarist, songwriter, we talked about how her musical journey began and her time being a 'gypsy' on the west coast to her return to Memphis and her eventual win to get to the IBC.

We talked about the fan-funding for her upcoming album and how much interest that generated for her.

We listened to music from her last album Valerie June & The Tennessee Express, which she made with members of the Old Crow Medicine Show.
