For this month’s Bess Rogers Presents: Songs Other People Wrote cover, Chris Kuffner and I decided to take on one of my favorite Talking Heads’ songs, Once In A Lifetime, and give it a synthy dancy makeover! We had a lot of fun making this one and I hope you all have a lot of fun listening.
Go grab it for FREE on Bandcamp (click through via the artwork below) and share with your friends if you like it!
I just started a cover series called Bess Rogers Presents: Songs Other People Wrote. (a pretty cryptic title, I know). Each month I will be releasing a new cover song for FREE on my bandcamp page! And since I’m a 90′s girl at heart, this month’s installment is a cover of Found Out About You, orginally by the Gin Blossoms.
Chris Kuffner and I played all the instruments except for drums, percussion and cardboard box, which were played by Zach Jones. We also employed my two new favorite musical toys, the iKaossilator and the Pocket Piano, which I highly recommend checking out if you like making noise.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy the song, and please share it if you do!
p.s. the cover photo was taken while on tour in Ireland. We stopped randomly for gas, found ourselves at a castle (typical), and I managed to capture this candid shot of some mean Irish sheep.
If you’ve seen Allie Moss and I either opening for Ingrid Michaelson in LA or NY, or at one of our shows recently, you may have seen us play a cover of Bye Bye Love; the happiest sounding sad song that has ever been. Well, we finally recorded it, with the help of Chris Kuffner, and it’s now for sale! We hope you enjoy listening to it as much as we enjoyed making it.
About 6 months ago I was given the amazing opportunity to try writing an updated version of the Cheerios® jingle. I grew up eating Cheerios® and have always been a fan (and I don’t have to say that), so naturally this was very exciting for me. Chris Kuffner and I got together in our home studio here in Brooklyn and created something that we felt really embodied the spirit of Cheerios®. Well many months (and over 100 other submissions) later our little theme was chosen! This is such a thrill!
There are several commercials and they are airing right now. But here’s a video of one of them in case you haven’t caught it.
Also they made this cereal box for me. How cute is that?!
Anyway, if you hear my voice coming from your television, please let me know on Twitter or Facebook! You can also leave a comment on the Cheerios® Facebook page. Hearing about it really never gets old.
THE FULL SONG – “The Perfect Day”
The icing on the cake is that along with modernizing the classic jingle in the new Cheerios® commercials, I also wrote a full length song to go along with their campaign! It’s called “The Perfect Day” and here are some links to listen and buy.
