This past Saturday, 88Nine was very lucky to have the talented Valerie June at StudioMilwaukee in Walker's Point. June has definitely had a fantastic 2013. She released her amazing debut album, Pushin' Against The Stone to critical praise. The Dan Auerbach produced album is appearing in a lot of 'Best Of' lists too. She has also collaborated with Booker T, Meshell Ndegeocello, and Fugees' John Forte.
In case you missed the session and her show later that night at Club Garibaldi, she will be opening up for Sharon Jones at Turner Hall on March 6, 2014.
We had to a chance to talk to her about her collaborations, the album, and more. We also gave her a couple of gifts including a Kringle. Plus, she performed three songs. Check out some of the photos from the session below.
