If you’re a longtime fan, or a new listener, of Elizabeth Mitchell, it’s likely you’ll be equally wooed by her newest album, Blue Clouds. The album includes a selection of traditional folk songs, alongside reimagined classic rock songs by David Bowie, Jimi Hendrix and Van Morrison, sung in Elizabeth’s folksy melodic style.
Without a doubt my favourite track on this album is Elizabeth’s version of David Bowie’s “Kooks”. I’ve listened to it four times this morning! I also love her Jimi Hendrix cover of “May This Be Love”… oh, and “Blue Sky” by The Allman Brothers Band is another hit!
Elizabeth has a beautiful voice and her albums are always filled with heartwarming songs. There’s one in particular on this album that is truly moving, it’s called “Circle of the Sun” and was recorded in honour of Elizabeth’s niece, Destry, who tragically died at just four years of age.
