Canadian singer/songwriter Jeffery Straker has a new video on YouTube, and it is really quite good. He offers up a cover of "Landslide", the beautiful song written by Stevie Nicks and first recorded by Fleetwood Mac in 1975 for their self-titled album. There was also the recent cover by The Dixie Chicks that stormed up the charts and played everywhere. While both were gorgeous, I have to say I just love Jeffrey's take on it, a beautiful piano-driven version that allows Jeffrey's vocals to connect to the song, and to take wing and soar.

You can find my review of Jeffery's album 'Vagabond' here. If you are pressed for time, I can give you a quick overview - I loved it! You can purchase 'Vagabond' from iTunes, Amazon, and Bandcamp.
