It’s been a busy few years for folk singer and guitarist Molly Tuttle. In 2018, she was named “Instrumentalist of the Year” by the Americana Music Association. Last year, she released her first full-length album When You’re Ready. Earlier this month, she played an opening set at Dead & Company’s Playing in the Sand festival in Mexico. Just before heading south of the border, she paid homage to the original Grateful Dead by releasing a video of her performing an acoustic cover of “Standing on the Moon.”
AURORA – Across the Universe (The Beatles cover)
The first of a couple Beatles covers this month, AURORA’s “Across the Universe” doesn’t reinvent the wheel, it just removes a few spokes. The Norwegian singer-songwriter strips everything away but keys and a bunch of voices (there’s a guitarist too, though barely audible). It’s all the song needs.
