This week, I’m sharing an acoustic cover I recently recorded of the Frank Ocean song, “Thinkin Bout You.”
Frank Ocean first came on the scene as a songwriter for some pretty big artists including Beyonce, Justin Bieber, and John Legend. His big break through came in 2012 with his debut album, Channel Orange. My favorite song from that album is the atmospheric opening track.
So as it happened, I recently came across a listing of someone who wanted this song played acoustically at his wedding so I recorded this so he could hear what it would sound like with me performing. Hopefully he picks me and I get the gig.
For this week’s episode, I’m sharing a cover I recently recorded of Neil Young’s song, Harvest Moon.
I’m playing a wedding later on this summer with my acoustic duo, The Fab Folk, and the bride requested that we play this song for her and the groom to dance to. I wanted to record it for her so she would have an idea what it would should like before we play it. The instruments are sparse: just acoustic guitar, mandolin, cajon and tamborine. I think it’s a great tune for a wedding and I’m excited to perform it for them.
