Wow! So this video has been up for a while & originally I didn’t write a blog post about it (for god knows why)… haha
I have been on the road with a friends band (my engineer, Chris Shaw’s band) House Vs Hurricane for the past few weeks on their ’40 Deep Tour’.. Which is why I haven’t uploaded a new song lately…
But the reason for me saying this is because, while I was away, I kept waking up each morning to new emails from YouTube, saying ‘New Subscriber’ or ‘New Comment’… I noticed that my cover of ‘I Need Your Love’ by Ellie Goulding & Calvin Harris has been gaining so much traction & the response to it has been so humbling & amazing!
I wanted to write in here about this song because as much as the original song is very dancey & pop, I feel like the lyrics have so much meaning & are so beautiful!
I really love the bridge when it says;
‘All the years, all the times, you have never been to blame. (and now my heart eyes are open & now my heart is closing) all the tears, all the lies, all the waste, but I’ve been trying to make a change’
I feel like that is so powerful & when I was recording that myself, I felt like it had to cut through so strong, which is why I’m basically yelling the second half.
Whats your favourite part of this song?
The audio for this song was recorded by Chris Shaw in Melbourne, Australia
& the video was filmed in the backyard of our own house in Melbourne, by my housemate (who is a very talented photographer) Wade Fletcher.
& edited by myself.
As I finish up this post, I’d like to thank everyone who has watched it & left a comment, be it from Lithuania, Germany or anywhere else that you have mentioned.. I’m so blown away by the fact that people all over the world are hearing my music & I cant wait to make more songs (originals & covers) for you to hear & give me feedback on!
Leave some comments on here & I will definitely get back to you as soon as I see them (and i definitely do read all comments & feedback)
