Familiar Taste Of Poison (Cover)
Familiar Taste Of Poison (Cover)Cover of Familiar Taste Of Poison by Halestorm! I'm so proud of this track as I think it's the best thing I've done so far, with a massive thank you to Alex Duffell for all the instrumental work, mixing, mastering and of course for asking me to be a part of the track in the first place! Enjoy and if you like it please give it a like, comment, share, whatever :)x
Youth (Cover)My cover of Youth by Daughter. I know there are a couple of mistakes with the lyrics at one point, but I was so pleased with the overall sound, I didn't want to do it again!(Mixed but unmastered). I've been asked by several people to cover this, so I hope you all enjoy it! x
Misguided Ghosts (cover)
Misguided Ghosts (cover)My multi-track from music tech last year. Not great, but thought I'd share it anyways :) Vocals, harmonies, bass and bass drum by me; guitar by Wyeth Cooke x
Home (Cover)A cover I did of Home by Gabrielle Aplin back when I was in college... I always thought it was kinda rubbish and I still do, but it's a couple of years old now and I haven't had anything to put on SoundCloud for ages so - enjoy x
Believing (Cover)Cover of Believing by Charles Esten and Lennon & Maisy Stella, from the TV show Nashville. It's kinda crappy but shut up and enjoy it, my resources are limited haha and this is the first time I've done lower harmonies well -.- x
Ho Hey (Cover)
Ho Hey (Cover)My cover of Ho Hey (Lennon and Maisy version), originally by The Lumineers. Just finished mixing it at college and it sounds failry decent, so I thought I'd share it with y'all. Enjoy x
My Happy Ending (cover)
My Happy Ending (cover)Cover of My Happy Ending by Avril Lavigne. I had fun with this! :') Enjoy x
Black Flies (Cover)
Black Flies (Cover)My slightly different take on the song Black Flies by Ben Howard. I recorded this nearly a year ago and I'm not totally happy with the vocals, hence why I've taken so long to summon up the courage to upload it! Enjoy x
Machines (Cover)Okay I know this is pretty rough, but aside from the misaligned vocals at the start (which I will eventually get around to fixing), I'm fairly pleased with it. (& yes, I attempted a Scottish accent, & yes I hummed the violin/lead guitar parts...) x
The Day I Left The Womb (cover)
The Day I Left The Womb (cover)Cover of The Day I Left The Womb by the incredible Escape The Fate. Very simple but I think it sounds pretty decent :) Used a different guitar for this one so it doesn't really sound as good... x
A Life That's Good (Cover)
A Life That's Good (Cover)My cover of Lennon & Maisy Stella's version of "A Life That's Good", from season 2 of the hit TV series Nashville. This was all done today in the space of about an hour and there was too much noise going on in the house for me to record the guitar using a mic, but I think it sounds okay given the circumstances. I love playing and singing this song, and I am obsessed with Nashville, so I hope you all enjoy it! x Disclaimer: I am not religious, I just like the song...
Jack & Charlotte - Get Lucky (Cover)
Jack & Charlotte - Get Lucky (Cover)Cover of a Daft Punk song.
Sundown (cover)Quite a rough cover of Sundown by Charlie Simpson. Very simple, and I used a different guitar to usual, so it really doesn't sound too great.. but still :L x
Green Eyes (cover)
Green Eyes (cover)Cover of Green Eyes by Coldplay. This is from way back in 2012 but hey, why not let you lovely people listen to it? ;) x
Building (cover)Cover of Building by Funeral For A Friend (from 2012). Enjoy! x
