Seth Avett & Jessica Lea Mayfield Sing Elliott Smith (Live On KEXP)

Seth Avett & Jessica Lea Mayfield - Live On KEXP


In this video, Seth Avett and Jessica Lea Mayfield talk about how they came about making an album with covers of twelve different Elliott Smith songs. The album is called Seth Avett and Jessica Lea Mayfield Sing Elliott Smith, and here they play a few of them live on KEXP radio. I've said it before and I'll say it again, the people at KEXP are doing everything right.

Elliott Smith was an incredible artist who has influenced many musicians to come since. It's sad to know that he left this world so young, but at least we have his beautiful catalog to remember him by. It's great to see Seth Avett and Jessica Lea Mayfield, both talented musicians in their own regard, doing covers like these. If you haven't listened to Elliott Smith yet, you need to look up his music and listen right now.

Songs:
1. "Baby Britain"
2. "Fond Farewell"
3. "Pitseleh"
4. "Between The Bars"

Up next: The Arcs - Stay In My Corner (NPR Front Row)
