Valerie June has been perfecting a blend of folk, blues and Appalachian-influenced music for nearly a decade, jump-starting her career with well-received local releases in Memphis. After a relocation to Brooklyn, June released Pushin' Against a Stone — her national debut — which was co-produced by Kevin Augunus and Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys.

On Thursday's installment of World Cafe, the genre-defying musician talks with WXPN's Michaela Majoun about growing up in small-town Tennessee and developing her unique style.
