Americana, Singer/Songwriter Valerie June releases a spicy music video for ‘Shakedown’, an up-tempo, and celebrative song off her forthcoming album ‘The Order of Time’, which couldn’t have come at a better time.
“Understanding the order of time is important to anyone hoping to manifest a dream. There is a time to push, and a time to gently tend the garden. Time is the ruler of Earth’s rhythm. Our daily lives revolve around it. Our hearts beat along to its song. If we let it, it can be a powerful guide to turning our greatest hopes and dreams into realities.” – Valerie June
Ecclesiastes 3: verse 1 fits June’s emergence perfectly. It states, “there’s a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the sun.” There was once a time, when June’s marriage was over and done with, and she was forced to survive as a gypsy-street musician, playing for chump-change in subways and bus stations. But now, look how times have changed. June’s once gloomy days are long gone because she made the radical change to ‘Shakedown’ her destiny.
FUN FACT: Valerie June emerged in the national spotlight when she was featured in MTV’s 2009 web series ‘$5 Cover’, which gave June, and other Memphis musicians, a platform to showcase their music in front of a wider audience. The series raised June’s profile, and she went on to record ‘Valerie June & the Tennessee Express‘, an EP with the Old Crow Medicine Show.
June, a multi-talented instrumentalist, was born in Memphis, Tennessee, where she nurtured her groovy sound, which contains a combination of Folk/Blues/Gospel/Soul/Country/Appalachian/and Bluegrass.
