Cover Sessions Late 2018

Covering a song from your favorite artist is not an easy task. What the song means for you is not always in a meaningful harmony with the practice you had. However, if the song you choose contains some special vocal tones and instrument contributions, you have to pay attention to them. As our musical project, Avenues, we mostly try to sing & play our own songs, but we’ve covered some of the artists we care about before, such as Neil Young, Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Whiskeytown, Pearl Jam, Uncle Tupelo, Wilco, Bruce Springsteen… But never tried a Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers song.

So with our new home studio, we tried acoustic covers for two Tom Petty songs. “Walls” and “Face in the Crowd”. Here is the video cut for the second one. Hope you enjoy it…
