I’ve been hesitant to put this up, and so this is my cover of “The Sight Of You” by Pale Saints. This song has taken many shapes for me over about 15+ years. From broken relationships of my family and friends to my own, it’s always had a profound impact on the power of a simple pop song.
I was asked to cover a specific piece of music which meant something close to me for an upcoming art project. My friend Clayton asked me to do it, and so I did. With the help of our dear friend Erik Blood, I went into the studio. I had a pretty specific outline and wrote much of the music. What Erik did was obviously nothing short of amazing. I’ve been embarrassed, scared and maybe sort of humbled that I could at least get this out of my system. As well as doing the vocals and the music, I live drummed on the thing. I hope Pale Saints fans who know the song will hear how much I have loved this song. My interpretation is modern, but the idea and the feeling behind this song is still everpresent. I hope.
