Last Friday night at The Fire for Valentine’s Day, singer-songwriter Adrien Reju performed a set of covers of “unconventional love songs” by Leonard Cohen, Lou Reed/The Velvet Underground, Tom Waits, Jeff Buckley, Sonny Bono and others. Reju went into her studio along with bassist Owen Biddle and Andrew Chalfin on guitar to record a version of Waits’ “I Hope That I Don’t Fall In Love With You,” that you can download below for free. On the song. Reju strips the song down to it’s essential emotional core, leaving the song and her voice to speak to the power of the music. Look for her live next at Kennett Flash on February 28th and at Milkboy on March 21st.
