Ever wondered what Bill Withers would sound like if he were making music right here right now? He'd be as smooth as ever. He'd ooze the same sunshine lyrics. He'd be dynamite. If Bill Withers was making music right here right now - he'd sound like New York City's very own Gyason. Who better to put the cover challenge to than the wonderfully intimate soft husk tones of Gyason Copeland?
As you will know by now we give each artist a choice of three covers before asking them why they chose to recreate the one they chose. Here are Gyason's three followed by his feeling on the track - enjoy:
I chose Affection because it was really calm. It sounds like something I should listen to on a cloudy day - it really stood out to me. I had heard of the band before but never heard this song. I liked the change of melody over the same chord progression throughout the song. Lastly, I thought that the vocal style was a good match for me. He has a very soft, almost whispering voice - that is usually my "go-to".
