I think I can safely say I’m the only person ever to cover a Jeff Buckley song on keytar… I wonder if that gives me some kudos or karma in some way?… Probably not… Anyway I needed to test my voice against something really hard & I’ve always loved this song so here it is:
Well not exactly… I bought a guitar and re-did the last song I uploaded ‘What Is It About You’.. re-named it ’10 Thousand Volts’ and also did a version of my protest song ‘Last Human’ They’re both on the player at the bottom of the screen!
This is the first time I’ve recorded a cover. I’ve been singing the song constantly for many years. Not only am (sadly ‘was’) I a huge fan of Jeff Buckley, more than one of my favorite artists have covered ‘Everybody Here Wants You’. The video is a kind of proof of concept for doing recordings […]

Image on the post is of my singing business card… Probly will use it as an album cover at some point.
Thanks for listening as always!
Well sort of… It’s an old song but played in a new way. The rest of the album is mostly new songs but this song got pulled from my last album due to some unsolvable issues – with this recording the song will see the light of day at last!
