Valerie June 2.26.14

Standing alone with just a banjo, Valerie June let her southern drawl ring throughout Studio 1A with “Somebody to Love.” The Tennessee native’s mix of soul, country, folk and blues creates organic, unhurried music. Check out her performance below.

The rock group made of James Petralli, Joshua Block, Steven Terebecki  and Austin Jenkins rocked out with “At Night In Dreams”, a perfect display of the group’s endless possibilities with cascading guitar riffs and seamless tempo changes.
