For their most recent installment of the Cover Club series, local music blog Root Down in the Shadow welcomed acoustic folk singer, Brad Hinton. Hinton is no stranger when it comes to covering songs by other Philly artists. He is the organizer for Philly Sings Philly, an event that takes place each week in November which has artists from around the Philly area cover each other. Hinton has been covered during both Club sessions and Philly Sings Philly sessions, so it only seemed natural that he received a Club series session of his own.
In the video below, Hinton is joined by Katie Frank of The Pheromones to perform a cover of Tin Bird Choir’s “Take Me With You When You Go.” On his own, Hinton’s vocals achieve a clean, crisp sound and the addition of Frank during the choruses adds another layer to the song that really gives it that folky-bluegrass affect.
Watch the full Cover Club video below and don’t miss Brad Hinton perform live this Saturday at Steel City Coffeehouse alongside Bethany Brooks.
