A great cover happens when an artist takes a song and completely makes it their own – and if you can cross genre lines, even better!
This morning I came across a cover that does all the above. Mimi Knowles accompanied by The Best Funking Band released a soulful cover of Drake’s Hotline Bling. Musically, the cover offers the familiar melody we all know, but adds a perfect blend of funk. The trombone, trumpet and sax are a touch of class.
Mimi Knowles, originally from Poland Springs, ME, started writing music when he was 15 and has been making music professionally for the last 3 years. He’s currently located in Provo, UT where he has been performing with his backing band for the past 2 years.
If your into his sound catch him next opening for 2 Chainz in Provo, UT on April 14th and then with Charlie Puth in Logan, UT on April 23rd. Knowles’ music is also available for purchase on iTunes and Spotify.
Subscribe to his YouTube Channel for more videos like this to come. Enjoy!
