With the emergence of new media, independent artists are now able to touch music fans with a broader reach. The ability of an indie artist to demonstrate their raw talent and share candid moments with their fan base enables them to connect with listeners on a deeper level. There are hundreds, if not thousands of recording artists who have found fame through sharing sites such as YouTube while performing cover songs of popular artists. While many indie performers make the mistake of covering a song, attempting to sound exactly like the original artist; others have been able to deliver successful renditions of some of our favorite hits, by putting their own spin on the production, re-mixing, and applying components from different genres while creating a distinctive voice.
While scouring the web for new music; we came across Spanish acoustic singer-songwriter, and guitarist Nacho Silvestre who released a video cover for David Guetta’s “Titanium”. The single is song is included on his EP Union St. (Deluxe Edition), which is a new edition of his 2012 EP release entitled Union St. Through his rendition of the popular song, Nacho delivers a unique upbeat guitar version amplified by striking vocals and visual interpretation. The skilled musician gives fans access to a more folk sounding delivery of the hit; with minimal production and virtually no vocal enhancements. Because Silvestre’s version is unplugged, void of heavy electronic influences, the lyrics are easier to understand and appreciate. He does an excellent job of capturing the essence of a true indie artist with raw, uncut talent. If you don’t take our word for it, see for yourself.
