I have been recording cover versions on and off since 2005 but they were more for my own entertainment than anything else. Whilst recording “The Luckiest Man in the World” I decided to record more of these covers in order to improve my own songwriting skills. Some of these recordings were already featured in my podcast but here I present them individually for your enjoyment. Remember, if you like any of these songs, show your gratitude to the original progenitor by purchasing some of their music.
