Augustana is one of my favorite bands ever. They just came out with a new album that you should def. pick up! This cover is also really good. Not many people can do a good cover of Dreams, but I am loving this one!

The Corrs did Dreams here in England in the '90s - it was one of the weakest and irritating covers I've ever heard!

But really I don't want to hear anyone covering FM or LB songs.

Default Eve's Burden on Dreams (Country Version)

https://www.prbuzz.com/entertainment...cs-dreams.html

P.R. Buzz Press Release

Eve's Burden releases new country version of Fleetwood Mac's Dreams


(PRBuzz.com) August 28, 2013 -- Those of you who know me well realize my favorite unsung heroes are a group from California called Eve's Burden.

EVE'S BURDEN is a group which can successfully blur the line between genres blending rock, country and soul into one homogeneous delicacy.

Already receiving much critical acclaim for their first release "The Black Letter"... EVE'S BURDEN sets out on yet another voyage into the pop music world with their up coming new album "A Checkered Past"

With a sound that has been compared to the likes of, Melissa Etheridge meets Janis Joplin and Led Zeppelin.

I recently had a chance to speak with Singer Sharon Jordan and guitar player / producer Jerry Leal about their latest single, an alternative country style remake of the classic hit song from the 70's by Fleetwood Mac and Stevie Nicks called "Dreams."

Jerry invited me down to his studio in California because he knew I would be chomping at the bit for anything new from this group. Their first album "The Black Letter" was great but the only thing I could compare it to was a modernized sound inspired by Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Janis Joplin and Santana with a heavy funky edge to it. This was completely different! Let me first state that Fleetwood Mac was once my favorite band. I remember seeing them long ago when they were a British blues band with guitarist Peter Green. Jeremy Spencer would dress up like Elvis Presley while Mick Fleetwood did a drum solo with his bare hands till he literally passed out and fell off the drum stool (that is how the show ended). After they added Lindsey Buckingham, Christine McVie and Stevie Nicks to the line up they left the blues behind and the sound became much more pop music oriented.

I was blown away when I heard the Eve's Burden country version of "Dreams." Unlike the original it has a groovy upbeat feel to it. That is probably why so many radio stations are already playing this cut. Here are the highlights from the interview with Jerry Leal and Sharon Jordan.

LMN - Jerry: I'll have to admit it took me by surprise, why did you pick the song "Dreams" JL - "As you know my style of writing is much more complex than just 2 chords, I just do not have the patience to write a song without some complex changes. Maybe that's why we've never had a big hit. So instead I looked for a cover song that was a hands down hit song but also a very simple one made popular by a female singer. "Dreams" by Stevie Nicks fit the bill perfectly."

LMN- Sharon: Most famous singers of your caliber just don't have the soul you can deliver, it's like they are all technique and no feeling. Your voice is usually so powerful and bluesy yet you do such a great job of delivering this song in a country pop style, why the big change? SJ- "We all agreed the vocals should not jump right out and slap you in the face like most of our other stuff. After all it was already a gigantic hit so there's nothing to prove. We just decided to let the song do the work. I'm really not a pop singer anyhow but I am "country" at heart."

LMN-Jerry: Was it difficult to make the switch from your rock and metal music roots to country? JL-"For me it did take some adjusting. This song is rooted in acoustic rock, that is not my normal thing. As for Sharon's vocal, we usually try to take the twang out of her voice but this time we just left it in and like she said she is "country" at heart. Her mother's maiden name was Jordan and her father's last name is Jordan, It don't get no more country than that !"

LMN-Jerry: This song is not americana or traditional country, it has a great driving feel to it. How did you accomplish that? JL-" Lots of tambourines. More cowbell! (laughs) No really the pedal steel guitar, piano and acoustic guitar do all the driving. The drums and bass just lay down a solid groove and of course I could not resist playing a few of my signature lead guitar licks."

LMN-Sharon : What are your expectations for this new single? SJ-"Heavy main stream and college radio airplay! PLEASE!"

LMN-In my humble opinion "Dreams" by "Eve's Burden" is a no-brainer radio hit for both pop and modern country radio stations to add to their playlist!

Listeners can go here to preview and download the single: http://cdbaby.com/cd/evesburden3

Radio stations can request a free copy by sending an email to: prs@pyramidrecording.net

Good luck guys and great Job! "Eve's Burden" features... Sharon Jordan on Vocals, Jerry Leal on guitar, Rik Willmitch on bass, Joel Solis on drums and Zack Kircorian on Keys "Dreams" features Jordan Rosen on pedal steel guitar with Scott Abels on percussion. Lucky Daye of "Lucky's New Music Blog"

Girl Blue releases video for her cover of Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Dreams’

For every iconic song in the world, there are countless covers in existence. It can be so difficult to put your own spin on a song and stand out, whilst also respectfully paying homage to the original. However, when a cover is done right, it can be an incredibly special moment.

Singer, songwriter and producer Arielle O’Keefe, better known as Girl Blue, recently released her version of Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Dreams’. As one of the band’s most well loved songs globally, it’s a hard task to re-imagine the track however, Girl Blue has delivered the most haunting version which captures the original emotion of the song.

Starting off with a stripped back production, Girl Blue’s breathtaking voice does all of the talking. She has such a captivating tone, it’s hard not to lose yourself in her pitch-perfect vocals. Later on, the track is laced with an electronic vibe, as a hypnotic beat is added to proceedings. This adds a modern element and Girl Blue stamp to the song, which we really love.

We’re not the only ones who are appreciating Girl Blue’s cover either. The track has over 195,000 streams on Spotify and was featured on Spotify USA’s New Music Friday playlist. Speaking about her choice of cover, she said: “Rumours was an album I’d had around as a kid but it hit me really differently as an adult. The album is full of hits, but ‘Dreams’ has always been the quintessential Rumours song for me.”

Yesterday (October 31), Girl Blue unveiled the visual for the song. Directed by Chromoscope Pictures, the eerie video shows the singer in the woods at night, singing incantations over a spell she’s casting. The visual has a gothic vibe, which suits the Halloween release date perfectly.

Speaking about the inspiration behind the visual, Girl Blue said: “I think that visual really leans into the foreboding you’ll regret this side of the lyric, I wanted to channel Stevie and the spirit of the song a la ‘The Craft’ and the ‘The VVitch’’ it was really fun to do.”

Check out the visual for ‘Dreams’ below.


Girl Blue has long been making waves on the music scene thanks to her incredible vocal arrangements and storytelling ability. Her debut EP I Am Not A Star was released earlier this year and received incredible support from Spotify, with lead single ‘Fire Under Water’ being streamed over 2.2 million times. We can expect even more new music from her soon, as she is preparing a new album for release in early 2018.

‘Dreams’ is available now.

Years & Years covered Fleetwood Mac in session, and it sounded exactly like this
You can check out the band 'doing' 'Dreams' for BBC Radio 2 now.


We’re presuming you’ve already taken our advice and sacked off most of your weekend plans for Years & Years’ new album ‘Palo Santo’, so you’ll have plenty of time to check out this lovely little ‘in session’ chaser.

The band performed on the BBC Radio 2 Breakfast Show yesterday morning (6th July) to celebrate the release of their second album. While doing so, they recorded a stripped back cover of Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Dreams’.

If you’re a fan of really quite lovely takes on all time classics, while watching radio types awkwardly realise they’re in shot of a webcam while someone nearby plays music, you’re in luck. You can check it out below.
