If you’re the type that just can’t get enough Memphis music, you’re already well acquainted with Valerie June. The singer/multi-instrumentalist made her debut a decade back on her eponymous country-bluegrass EP, and has since come to weave in sonic threads from a variety of genres with insurmountable grace.
2021 is looking especially auspicious for Valerie June, who’s set to release her first-ever book of insights, poems, illustrations and more in April, and precedes it with her third full-length, The Moon And Stars: Prescriptions For Dreamers. Prospects are high for The Moon And Stars, due out March 12th, and its lead single (and music video), “Call Me A Fool” are a surefire way to push you through this hump day, thanks in no small part to contributions from the Memphis Queen of Soul herself, Carla Thomas!
