Here’s my latest cover. It’s “Let’s Stay Together” by Al Green, one of my favourite artists. His voice makes me shiver.
Aint No Sunshine is one of my all-time favourite classics. I love Bill Withers’ ease at singing it, it’s effortless…
This is one of my deeper songs but not everyone would get that… it’s actually pretty dark if you listen to the lyrics but that’s disguised by the upbeat tempo, I wanted that contrast as it follows the mental instability of the lyrics. Listen to the words and the song will explain itself.
As the title suggests, this song is purely about ‘Breaking Up’ from a strong relationship that you once thought would last forever. I wrote this when I was going through some relationship problems and was scared about how I would deal with it, so writing it down was an outlet for me.
Duffy’s vocal range suits mine and so I feel at home singing her songs. I love the depth of her voice and soulfulness.
This is a song about the female psyche, women are big thinkers and analysers, sometimes to our own detriment. That’s what ‘Detective’ is about: a woman in a relationship who is constantly looking for clues and analysing situations in the fear that she is being taken for a fool – whether it’s in her head or whether the man has caused these thoughts…
This is not one of my deepest songs. I came up with the line “biting on my fingernails” about a year previous to the recording and for some reason it stuck in my head and I wanted to base a song on it. The lyrics are about the age old problem of falling for someone you know is no good.
