Listen To Daisy Chapman’s “Umbrella”


Videos by American Songwriter

For the Independent Music Awards’ best “Cover” category, we voted for Daisy Chapman’s beautiful, piano-lead rendition of Rihanna’s ubiquitous “Umbrella.”

Says Chapman of the tune: “I really enjoy breaking songs down and building them up again. Umbrella had the bones of a really pretty tune once you’ve stripped out the R+B riffs. The chord structure and lyrics made for a really sentimental song, and writing a string quartet arrangement gave it depth and poignancy.”

Listen to the track, and read an interview with the British folk artist here.

Tell us what you think of her version. Did we make the right choice?
