At turns ethereal and gritty, ferocious and fragile, Valerie June’s vocals possess a certain transformative quality, instantly melting away the chaos of the everyday and leaving only the immutable glow of absolute truth. The follow-up to June’s widely adored “The Order of Time” —a 2017 effort that earned the admiration of Bob Dylan and landed on best-of-the-year lists from the likes of Rolling Stone and the New York Times — “The Moon and Stars: Prescriptions for Dreamers” is a potent catalyst for that kind of magic. With her spellbinding vocals and infectious sense of wonder, June gently eases the listener into a far more charmed state of mind, one that quickly restores a powerful feeling of joyful possibility.

Valerie June performs live at the Fort Mose Jazz & Blues Series on February 16. Gates open at 6 p.m., show starts at 7 p.m. Tickets are $42-$92. Fort Most Historic State Park, 15 Fort Mose Trail, St. Augustine. www.discoverfortmose.com
