NEW ARTIST ALERT: “Sweet Child O’ Mine” – Taken By Trees.

Dear lord, we’re back in business. Hallelujah.

I return with a wealth of goodies, number one being this cover of an 80’s classic. Me, I lost all respect for Guns n’ Roses when I found out that Axl Rose’s name was an anagram. Classy, dude. But as we all well know, the eighties are alive and well in popular music, and sometimes I wonder if most hit songs today aren’t just remakes of older versions I’m not familiar with. Recycling is all the rage now, you know.

Taken By Trees

Taken By Trees is the solo project of Victoria Bergsman, former lead singer for The Concretes. This cover of “Sweet Child O’ Mine” is off the second album, East of Eden (kudos on the name from a Steinbeck fan). This may be a cover, but it’s also brand spankin’ new from an artist that looks promising — and that’s what discovery is all about.
