Ever wonder what Bon Iver “Skinny Love” would sound like without falsetto singing? If so you’ll love Tommy Miller’s cover of this indie folk music masterpiece written by Justin Vernon. Tommy Miller’s indie rock voice captures Bon Iver Skinny Love perfectly!
Tommy Miller is an old dear friend of mine. We have been talking about making a video together for probably 5 years now, so I’m very happy to have the first one be Bon Iver “Skinny Love.” His take on this cover song is absolutely beautiful! Don’t get me wrong I love Bon Iver’s falsetto voice, but I’ve always wanted to hear someone sing one of his songs with power. Tommy, you did well sir!
Bon Iver “For Emma, Forever Ago” was one of those albums that opened my mind up to a whole new world of music. So many songs from that album, “Skinny Love”, “Flume”, and “Stacks” are regulars in my iTunes playlists and youtube playlists. Earlier this year Bon Iver aka Justin Vernon released a new album and I was so happy to find it just as enchanting as the first. How good is that song Holocene? (the answer is “sooooo good”) Also if you are fan of Indie Folk music like I am, check out the band Angus & Julia Stone, I recenetly discovered them to be quite wonderful, especially the songs Mango Tree & Bella. If you listen to it, please let me know what you think!
Thank you to Tommy Miller for showing us your blooded and crushed veneer on this Bon Iver Skinny Love cover song. I’m always up to do a video with you! Just let me know where and when!
Thank you to all who have watched, subscribed, commented, friended me, and any other social networking interaction! I’m blown away with the support. As long as you keep watching I promise to keep making wonderful music videos for you!
