Letter From The Studio – Favorite Covers

Hey now luvs!  You guys know I’m either on the move or hard at work.  I have this new site up, I’ve been working on the EP and I have a bunch of covers to some of the best new songs out for you guys to download for FREE here – YAY!!!!! lol.

 

But in case this is your first time here, or even if you’re here frequently, I want to share with you 3 of my current favorite covers in the acoustic series with myself and producer / guitarist Brandon Carter thus far.  So without further ado, here they go.

 

USHER- CLIMAX

I love how Usher always seems to reinvent himself.  He did it her on this track.  It’s such a great mixture of pop and r&b.  The instrumental is great and we went to see how we could bring that type of energy in an acoustic version of the song.  If you look carefully, you might see me shed a tear lol, nah I kid, I kid.  But I did lose myself in the song a bit, get a little country and explore my inner Bootsy Collins because it was so well written.  I enjoyed covering this song a lot!

 

 

RIHANNA ft. JAY-Z – TALK THAT TALK

On Talk that Talk we wanted to see how we could completely strip the song and make it new.  We slowed it down and gave it a more passionate, sultry and soulful feel.  It is a very pretty song and this really helped bring the words out more.  It is simple, but affective.  This is one of my favorite covers because it is so unexpected.

 

 

ADELE – SET FIRE TO THE RAIN

I admire Adele’s voice so much.  I can see how she had to have surgery on her vocal chords.  This song is so packed with power and emotion!  You can’t help but put your being into this song!  All of her songs are great and she is a wonderful talent.  I just wanted to explore some of what she does with this song and add a bit of La’Rayne to it.
