I have the pleasure of personally knowing this beautifully loc'd diva. She is as sweet as her face in this picture. I used to play on the same stage as she a few years ago, when I performed spoken word. With the voice and face of an angel and a Medusan tangle of dreadlocks as thick and strong as her family ties and her musical roots in the flatlands of West Tennessee, Valerie June is a true original and an emerging star in the legendary and still vibrant Memphis music scene.
