Valerie June The Order Of TimeTo see the future more clearly it’s necessary to look deeper into the past. Valerie June is an artist with a gift for translating old traditions into fresh forms.

Born in Tennessee and now based in New York, Valerie’s music reflects a great love and understanding of blues, jazz and soul, and in turn reveals new and previously unexplored sounds within. The Order Of Time contains songs written over years, and beautifully captures the moments that often come to define our lives, whether we realise in the moment or at some point much later. There’s immediacy in the melodic elements and complexity in the vocal performances, and more to appreciate with each repeated listen.
