I found an unlabeled MP3 of this song in my “to be sorted” folder and found myself intrigued by the slightly whimsical cover, and the strength of the singer’s voice. Â It took a little Googling, but I eventually found the source. (Note to artists: label your MP3s accurately! Â It makes it easier for me to write about you!)
Scott Bradlee is a New York-based singer-songwirter who put this cover together with a bunch of friends. Â It was recorded live in one take. Â The vocalist is Niia, and I will definitely be checking her out in the future. Â Bradlee and friends are also responsible for the Motown Tribute to Nickelback, the only thing in recent memory which has made Nickelback listenable.
