It takes a set of brass balls to attempt to cover an Adele song. Thankfully, Connecticut-based rock band Chaser Eight has such a pair, as they’ve been blowing audiences away with their cover of “Hello.”
Between the rock spin they put on the song, and *AUDRA*’s amazing vocals, it’s become a crowd favorite, and a song that instantly turns people who were previously unfamiliar with the band into fans. Oh, and did I mention there’s an epic guitar solo at the end? There’s an epic guitar solo at the end!!!
Check out the above clip from a recent show, and hear why you’ll want to say “Hello” to Chaser Eight. If you dig it, give their latest acoustic EP a listen.
B-Listers are a select group of artists that were featured in my Artist Of The Week series that ran every Monday from April of '06 to April of '11. All of these artists have two things in common; extreme talent, and a flight path far too under the radar for my liking. They took on the title of B-Listers as they embraced being featured by me, Adam B. Check out the AOTW Archives for all the interviews.
