We first discovered 21-year-old singer-songwriter Lelia Broussard the way many people did: by checking out her cover of Beyonce’s “All The Single Ladies,” which garnered over two million views on YouTube. That led us to her excellent new album, Masquerade.
We’re excited to debut Broussard’s next cover project (recorded just for us!): her solo take of the White Stripes’ classic “Dead Leaves And The Dirty Ground.” It’s funny how Jack White’s high-pitched vocals perfectly lend themselves to the female voice, and Broussard shows herself to be equally adept at recreating White’s bluesy rocker as she did Beyonce’s R&B banger.
If you can hear a piano fall, you can hear her coming down the hall.
