Valerie June @ Album de la Semaine for Canal+, Paris April 17 2013

It's been a while since we've been to this tv show, good to be back in this tiny 100 capacity studio.
We're here to see VALERIE JUNE promoting her 5th album Pushin’ Against a Stone, she's now the protégée of Dan Auerbach from The Black Keys.
She's sexy and has a beautiful orange dress and a nice "gorgone" haircut,  lloking a bit shy.
She's playing traditionnal music: rural Folk-Blues. Nice songs, half of them performed on her own on acoustic guitar or banjo and the rest with her band, that sounded much better.
I'm not really convince by her laid-back high-pitched voice that is making her sound like a Memphis version of Duffy.
Short 7 songs -30 min set.

She will be playing @ Fleche d'Or club for the [Pias] night in Paris on April 26.

We'll be back @ L'Album de la Semaine as soon as next monday for MILES KANE who's promoting his second solo album. Really looking forward for this one.
