Soundcheck Sunday

Allison Crowe, “Hallelujah”

Though most people who are serious about their music would rate Jeff Buckley’s version more highly — and there is really something magnificent and mesmerizing about the Buckley cover — I have a soft spot for Crowe’s cover. Her voice reminds me of a young k.d. lang, and there’s a simplicity about the way she’s arranged the piano work in this piece that uncovers another side to the song.

Bonus Allison Crowe track!
