I grew up listening to Motown and Al Green is one of my favourite artists. “Tired of Being Alone” is an enduring classic soul song.
“Sittin’ on the Dock of the Bay” is a song from my childhood. I love Otis Redding’s deep soulful voice. There’s a sad surrounding story to the song too: he died in a plane crash 3 days after writing it, so never knew its success.
I was inspired to do my own cover of “Make You Feel My Love” after hearing Adele’s version, as it’s a beautiful song and she’s a new-age soulstress!
Here’s my latest cover. It’s “Let’s Stay Together” by Al Green, one of my favourite artists. His voice makes me shiver.
