A cover :) ...
on: March 18, 2018, 12:26:30
Hi everybody!

It's been such a long time since I posted here and since I actually sang something new (!) ...I'm really missing the kitchen and promise to get back once I get some more spare time in my life! ...anyways, I managed to squeeze in a very short song yesterday night amidst the busy schedule and as always I'm excited to share it with you over here :) This is the first time that I actually tried to cover a commercial pop-song which has been released this week. It's a very short ca. 1 minute version, rough recording, where I tried to recreate the sound in a new style. It would be interesting to listen to your views on it :)

Here it is:


Have a nice week kitcheners
and happy cooking! :)

I missed this.  Really great song choice to showcase your voice - especially with the stripped bare arrangement that keeps the listener rivetted and hanging on the next word.

IVe actually never heard the original so it sounded really fresh to me. Lovely velvety vocal and sounds great to me.

Hey Rachel.......I really like this. You really get soulful as the song progresses. I am also unfamiliar with the original so your send up of it is something completely fresh and new for me.

Really nice to hear something from you @Rachel_D cover or not ::Note:: I've never heard the original either, but you've done an amazing vocal coverage of it, regardless  ::Suzy::

Hey @Rachel_D ....you're calling this a "rough recording" where you tried to create the cover in a new way. The thing is, it's very good! - as good as many of the "pro youtuber coverers" and done in a way that they'd do it.  (this is meant to be a compliment.... in case it doesn't read that way)  :) Very nicely done!

The only thing you're missing is the little video clip at the end where you say, "Hey guys thanks for watching my video. Don't forget to subscribe to my channel!"  :D
The point is you could totally do a youtube cover channel but you're probably way too cool to do it!
