Watch Out! Valerie June – “Workin’ Woman Blues” – David Letterman 8-21-13

Valerie June - Workin' Woman Blues - David Letterman 8-21-13

David Letterman, and his music booker at the Late Show Sheryl Zilikson, continued their ongoing support of Americana and roots music by featuring the solo network TV debut of roots-soul singer/songwriter Valerie June.

Dave yuks it up with Paul Shaffer by playing off Valerie June’s surname by joking “I think she used to be married to Johnny Cash.” June plays along and confirms that it’s true.

Junes makes her debut a memorable one. Her performance “Workin’ Woman Blues” from her debut “Pushin’ Against a Stone” is riveting.

    Unique sound, indeed…but I dare say, Laura Love had this vibe going on years ago. They have quite a lot in common.
