WESTCOAST TRIO CANNON KEEPS IT CRAZY, SEXY, COOL WITH COVER TO TLC’S CREEP

73views

Throw back Thursday is in full effect, and to help wet the appetite for the weekend we have a nice cover of TLC’s “Creep” from Los Angeles trio Cannons. The band strips the song down with a futuristic pop twist, and adds a rubber-band baseline to a pulsating dance beat. The melodic accompaniment, originally carried out by horns, has been replaced with a guitar. Michelle Joy takes charge of the vocals, and sings out the verses on a higher scale; however, she maintains T-boz’s cool to the crazy and sexy.

As always, support indie music and check out the band’s Bandcamp,https://cannonstheband.bandcamp.com/track/tlc-creep-cannons-cover; https://soundcloud.com/cannonstheband; Instagram, @cannonstheband; and Facebook, https://www.facebook.com/cannonstheband/.

Born and raised in the birthplace of Funk, and arguably the birthplace of Rock n’ Roll, music is in my veins. If names like Bootsy Collins, and the Ohio Players ring a bell, then you know where I come from. As a musician and poet myself, I have an appreciation for art that hasn’t been inundated by the agendas of major labels and networks. Recently I’ve been sharing music and connecting with artists via social media. Follow me on Instagram @mainstream_music_isgarbage.
