Cover The HITS #6: Saint Alto

Hey guys!

One of the first things I've learned (the hard way) from house in the sand, was that things don't always go as planned and a lot of times you just have to believe in Rock'n'Roll and go with whatever happens.

It wasn't always easy to do that, but within the last 5 years, I've definitely gotten better at it.

Our Cover The HITS series sailed quite smoothly for the first few weeks, but there are always going to be some technical difficulties along the way - and so here we are, embracing them.

Today's cover is a little different compared to the others, but nonetheless - it's amazing.
And that's really all we care about.

Just to make sure you know what Cover The HITS is about, let us explain:
We love cover versions, so here we are - showcasing eight exclusive covers throughout the month of October.

You'll find a new video each Wednesday and Saturday, performed by artists we truly believe in.

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.

Today we have another familiar face here - we get to listen to Saint Alto's fantastic cover.

Saint Alto is the new moniker of Birmingham's Phil Barber who was previously known as one half of Winter 1982.
Refreshing Alternative Folk might be the best way to describe the sound, however, listeners are always in for a surprise.

Even though Saint Alto is still a new-ish project to the industry, BBC Introducing is already as excited about it as we are.
With a few songs out already, we've heard enough to become big fans.

Saint Alto covered 80's mega hit "Ain't Nobody" by the one and only Chaka Khan.
If today you don't feel like dancing, but simply want to relax with a cup of tea in your hands - this cover is for you.

Check out Saint Alto's cover of "Ain't Nobody" right here:

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

Big thank you to Phil for still delivering some this quality cover, even though technology wasn't on board.
