Forlorn Strangers

Another Kickstarter cover!  I found the Forlorn Strangers one night sifting through Kickstarter projects.  They seemed like good people, had a good sound, offered a cover song reward, and there was a banjo in their Kickstarter profile photo...it was fate. ;p  They did their cover on YouTube, and if you want a copy of the song without the long intro you can get that off Bandcamp.

Chris Shaw

Chris ran a Kickstarter to fund a new EP back in mid 2014, and one of the rewards was a new cover song that he would upload on YouTube & SoundCloud.  I liked his sound, so I backed it to get a new take on our favorite song.  The due date for the cover was November 2014..it's now February 2017.  Those of you who know me, know I'm not one to forget or let things go.  So eventually after a handful of e-mails over a span of 2 years a MP3 of "Today's The Day" ended up in my e-mail inbox late in 2016.  He let me know the YouTube version wasn't going to happen, and to his credit he offered to refund my money.  I declined to take a refund because I mainly wanted to hear the cover & in the end I got what I wanted.  After you listen to his cover, you can check out his links below, and his new music video I embedded here as well.
