D’lys – Sea Of Heartbreak (Johnny Cash Cover)

7 Mar

Today’s post is very random, in the scheme of what I’ve been posting recently, but then its always good to change things up and in this case slow them down as well.

D’lys is an up and coming singer/ songwriter hailing from the big smoke. Formerly a member of a girl group called Frayja, she has now stepped out on her own and offers up a wonderfully emotive, acoustic cover of Johnny Cash to give us a taster of what she’s about.

Accompanied only by a guitar she gives a beautifully solemn rendition of the country and western classic ‘Sea Of Heartbreak’. Her deep, husky voice which is reminiscent of Tracy Chapman’s incredibly unique tones sits wonderfully well with the slowed down guitar, and gives the song a fresh feel.

Click below to watch the video of Dilys performing ‘Sea Of Heartbreak’. With that stunning unique voice it will be really intriguing to hear what her own original stuff sounds like, because one things for sure there isn’t anyone currently ticking this box in the charts right now!
