I understand that most cover songs are often requested to stir nostalgia, for a special moment, to celebrate and enjoy our memories with people we love. I am fully aware of that, and when I am learning a cover for a wedding or event I don’t take that lightly.
I always aim to make the song as special as possible, just like I do writing and creating my own songs.
My style is to take a song and make it my own, because to me, to sing a song and make it ring true, to have authenticity, you need to connect and mean it.
This is very important to me. I think that committing to this philosophy is one of my attributes that make my performance stand out.
I have over three hours of cover songs in my repertoire across genres including Folk, Rock, Indie, Country and I rehearse daily.
I am able to perform songs by The Beatles, Foo Fighters, U2, Coldplay, Kate Bush, Bob Dylan, Killers, Rolling Stones, Kings of Leon, The National, Bruce Springsteen, Arcade Fire, Jason Isbell, Shaky Graves, Eagles, Oasis and Roy Orbison to name a few.
I also covered artists like Drake, Beyoncé, Rihanna, and put my own J.R Hemingway twist on them.
I am very happy to learn specific songs, for your special occasion or event.
For example, for your first dance, and/or if you have a particular song you want played as you walk down the aisle, or perhaps when you leave the ceremony as a married couple.
I am also offering something quite unique, and if requested, I will write a song for your special day. Maybe for your first dance, so it’s unique and tailored to only you and your loved one. (I will ask you to share some stories about the two of you, maybe how you met etc – so I can make the song as personal and unique to your relationship as you’d like).
I will record the song for you so you can play it whenever you want, so you can relive your special moments at any time you wish.
