I've written plentiful praise for Faith Evans Ruch in the past. She's about to release a new, soul-inspired album. While the world of country will miss her, here's her latest single, a Nancy Sinatra cover, that leaves no doubt as to Ruch's range and virtuosity.
This cover was, in fact, several years in the making. Drummer Ryan Peel and Alex Kramer created the arrangement, which updates Nancy's original haunting guitars with a reggae-esque undertone, and approached Ruch several years ago. She felt the song fit with her upcoming album, and here we are. (Note that while the drums sound looped, Peel is actually playing them live.) You can purchase the single tonight at midnight and ever afterward on iTunes.
