Cover The HITS #1: Charlie Hole

Hey guys!

This is the very first part of our new series - Cover The HITS.

Throughout the month of October, we will be sharing exclusive cover versions, performed by artists we truly believe in.
There's going to be one new video each Wednesday and Saturday, premiering right here, on good ol' house in the sand.

(Yes, we love covers. And puns - hence the name of this series.)

To help us make this series a big (and maybe recurring) feature, we'd love for you to share it with your friends by using the hashtag #CoverTheHITS on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram.

We are excited to kick off the series with Charlie Hole, a super talented musician, whom you'll get to know better today.

Charlie Hole is a singer/songwriter from Bournemouth, UK.

His carefully crafted music combines Acoustic and Folk elements in such elegant manner.
Charlie started making and writing music at the young age of eleven and has been going strong ever since.

With inspirations such as Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, Tom Waits & Paul Simon, it's no surprise that we find a lot of personality and intimacy in his songs.

His debut album "The Joy of a Caged Bird" was released in 2013.
With loyal fans and praise from none other than Rod Stewart and three time Novello Award winner Andy Hill, it's safe to say we're not the only ones with his music on repeat.

Charlie recently released his new single, a cover version of Maggie Rogers' song "Dog Years".
And he's got a brand new EP coming up on October 6th - exciting times!

We are super happy that Charlie is opening this series for us and we just can't wait for you to check out the video we filmed in a little sunflower field near my hometown.

Charlie decided to cover Fleetwood Mac's beautiful "Landslide" - a song most of us have probably cried to after a breakup. Am I right?
He definitely put his own twist to it and we're absolutely delighted to share it with you.

Check out Charlie's cover of "Landslide" right here:

In case you aren't familiar with the original, you can find it here.
