Get It Here

My philosophy on taking on someone else’s song is not to unless you can bring something original to it.

Ciara’s song “Promise” is one I have long connected with. The melody is stand-out beautiful and the production is, of course, part of the reason I fell in love with the song. I, however, decided to strip the song down to piano and flute to showcase the longing and intimacy of the melody.

I was, originally, only going to record it as part of a series of stripped down songs I am doing on YouTube, but with comments like “amazing”, “beautiful”, and “brilliant” I decided it worthy of being my first commercially available cover song.
