This year, I wanted to expand my Youtube channel and begin posting some cover songs as well as original songs again after such a long time. I’m not sure how well they are going to be received by you all, especially those of you in my journaling/crafting community, but I decided to start posting them anyway.
This first song is a cover of Katy Rose’s “Because I Can.” That album really helped me through some rough times and Katy was the one who inspired me to take my songwriting seriously. It will always be one of my favorite albums ever. I’ll be forever grateful for that day back in 2004 when a fourteen year old me stumbled into Tower Records after school to kill some time while she waited for her friends. I picked up this CD because it was amongst all the Liz Phair/Alanis sounds that I liked at the time, having no clue what to expect. One of my best purchases ever. I took that CD everywhere with me. I still do. My phone always has Katy Rose on it cause I never know when I’ll need a little Rose to make the day better.
So naturally, I wanted my first new cover song that I post to be one of hers. So here it is. I’m awfully rusty at these, but I do hope you enjoy.
