"Style - Tori Kelly." 14th June 2013
So it's been a while since I've done a blog post because it's been BUSY!
Anyway here's a little video that is ACE. Can't even remember who told me about it now!
Tori Kelly is gonna be huge pretty soon. She's on the lineup for V Festival this year in the UK so make sure if you're going that you make it to see her!
This is her cover of JT's Suit n Tie and I freaking love it. The control in the riffs and the style with which she pulls off this song is just superb. So, for those of you who are out there busking or performing in bars or trying to make it big, here's a great great example of how to take someone else's song and make it your own. If you're ever planning on doing a cover of a song, make sure you put your own stamp on it. Whether that's through changing some of the lyrics, changing the tune, adding another song in (mash up), or just adding a few of your own riffs in. The slight changes in the song will keep people's attention as well as give off the impression that you are super musical and stylish… even if you're not! Now hear me out, I don't mean you need to go change every last detail of a song… just make it yours.
Hope you enjoy listening to this song as much as I do! I play it a LOT.
