I'm happy to say that as of earlier today, Josie Charlwood has put a new recorded studio cover on SoundCloud. It's a pure, stripped-back cover of Adele's moving 'Turning Tables'. A couple of days ago, in fact, she posted a video of herself performing the song live.
It's a deliciously humble treatment of the track, with Josie's voice coming across like an honest breeze, pretty as it is powerful.
The bare bones piano and voice combination brings much more emotion to the song, leaving the flash, big-cost productions in the dust. Josie Charlwood's vocals, in a similar sense, are not nuanced with trills or vibrato, nor a 'put-on' style warble à la Ellie Goulding (for example), but instead are very much coming from her own charming voice. Bravo for that, seriously, because it sounds wonderful.
So, here's that SoundCloud version. You can buy this track directly by clicking on 'buy'.
With a sizable back-catalogue already floating behind her like various accolades of musical prowess, there's already a lot to Josie Charlwood than just her voice and her piano. Discover more of her music and, once you've whet your appetite enough, sit tight and wait for her next assuredly impending release. Looking forward to it.
