Lover, Your Should​’​ve Come Over

I started working on this Jeff Buckley cover two years ago, in fact the main vocals you hear were recorded in January 2021. I struggled too much with my limitations to feel really confident about my cover when I started it back then. As I was explaining to Tom last night, Jeff Buckley was a singer who, it seemed, just had to open his mouth and beauty would pour out. I can get there sometimes, and I like to think I have a good ear for emotive singing, but it’s not easy for me. However, I know that in January 2021 I was really missing people I loved that I didn’t live with, and I can hear that in this vocal performance. 

I got the flu (I’m guessing, since Tom and my mom both got their flu shots & didn’t get sick, unlike myself and Pickles (whoops)) last week and my voice is still totally wrecked by it. Fortunately I used the extra low register to sing the lower octaves you hear here, yesterday.

The rain is sampled from out my studio’s door the other day. I had to hold a piece of velvet up to keep the microphone dry, but I was happy with the sound. 

Of course you recognize the intro is Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata. It just seemed like exactly the right pining and melancholy vibe.
