Here on OurStage we often encourage our artists to upload their own original material. For boring, yet necessary, copyright reasons we can’t allow cover songs in many of our channels. So it’s just about time that we give the covers some love. After perusing the Cover Bands Channel I found that it was full of great pop hits! Who knew?
Some of the best covers are those songs that have been completely rearranged to reflect an artists own particular style and sound. One such artists dominating the Cover Bands charts is Heidi Jutras. Her arrangements of “Toxic” by Britney Spears and “Sweet Dreams” by Beyoncé have turned over-produced Top 40 pop hits into orchestral works of art. She puts a completely different beat over reworked harmonies and melodies to make her renditions something completely new.
Vassya, another popular OurStage cover artist, took a completely different approach. His cover of “Bohemian Rhapsody” is spot on. As most people can guess, this is no an easy feat. Check out the playlist below for more of our favorite OurStage covers including “Decode” by Paramore, “Sex On Fire” by Kings of Leon, Lady Gaga’s “Just Dance” and Hellogoodbye’s “Here In Your Arms”!
