Covers Discovered Playlist (Annual Cover Show)

It’s that time of year, when we celebrate a different kind of songwriting. Yes, it does take a creative and innovative mind to do Cover songs the right way. There is definitely a wrong way to do them. If someone “covers” a song by recording it, producing it, and selling it, this cover needs to offer something new to our ears than what we’ve heard before. If it doesn’t offer anything new, why should I listen? I can check out the original and enjoy that.

This week’s show is a celebration of reinterpretation. Just like we’ve done for the past 7 years, we hear artists who have added their own flair, personality, and creativity to someone else’s music and made it their own. Enjoy and share our LISTEN NOW link!
