I grew up listening to B.B King, Aretha Franklin, Led Zeppelin, Buddy Guy and many more blues rich musicians. The blues always hit me hard and felt accessible and down to earth. There was no pretense, or pomp, just raw emotion.
I love hearing pop songs that are heavily influenced by the blues. A friend of mine that I play in a wedding band with introduced me to this song. He said he’d love to hear me cover it. I loved learning this song and putting my own spin on it.
