In keeping with my theme of cover songs today, I bring you one of the truly surprising and charming cover songs by singer/songwriter Jay Brannan. This time, Jay takes on Hip-Hop artist Nicki Minaj prior to her involvement with 'American Idol' on her wonderful song "Super Bass". Jay does it all with just his voice and acoustic guitar. I have seen Jay a couple of time, and his live shows never fail to impress me. His self-effacing humor, striking good looks, and interesting music all blend together to make a great evening. You can see it in this video, shot at a 2011 performance in New York City.
I am a huge fan of Jay's music, and recommend all his albums without hesitation. If you liked this performance, you can find Jay's cover of "Super Bass" by Nicki Minaj on his album 'Live at Eddie's Attic'. You can purchase this collection of live performances on iTunes and Amazon. To l;earn more about Jay Brannan, visit his official website. You can also 'follow' him on Twitter, or 'like' him on Facebook.
