A GIRL LIKE YOU (80s INSPIRED COVER)
If I had to describe the Edwyn Collins hit “A Girl Like You” with one word, it would be “mysterious.“ I’ve loved this song since the first time I heard it on Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle, and I enjoy every aspect of it, including the music, the words and the haunting performance by Edwyn. I wanted to make a cover with a “darker” feel and a modern 80s vibe, replacing the original instruments, including the vibraphone played by Paul Cook, with synths, while keeping the fuzzy guitar intact. I can confidently say that you have never heard this song like this before. Never. Never. Never. Never. Never heard this song like this before.
BREAKING THE HABIT (METAL COVER)
Breaking The Habit features one of Chester Bennington's most powerful and emotional vocal performances, and is a song that I've loved since the first time I saw the anime music video as a teenager. The song also has many catchy melodies and riffs that can be interpreted and performed in various ways. My goal with this cover was to strip it down to Chester's voice, and rebuild it with a heavier sound, bringing in inspiration from several genres within metal and rock.
THE PRETENDER (80S SYNTH ROCK COVER)
What happens when you combine your love for Foo Fighters and your love for 80s rock? This! “The Pretender” was originally released in 2007, and it quickly became one of my favorite songs. One night a few months ago, I was writing music with a Roland synth sound a la “Separate Ways,” and this idea came out. It made me wonder what the full song would sound like with an 80s synth rock mentality. After recording all the synths, I added guitars to beef it up more. I hope you enjoy it!
