“Beam Me Up” by Don Pedigo & The Coyotes

Don Pedigo & The Coyotes have released their own cover of the P!nk song “Beam Me Up”. I can admit that I never really heard of P!nk’s original version before, but I really love how Don Pedigo & The Coyotes made it their own. Inspired by the death of his son, Don Pedigo poured all those emotions of sadness and pain into creating this cover. You can hear in each note as emotions drip effortlessly. The band created a country alt-rock cover that is filled with so much talent in the vocals, the arrangement, and just how the band approached the song. It is definitely a must-listen!
“Forest” by Wildlife Freeway
Wildlife Freeway is back with their newest piano-folk tune “Forest”. It is a journey of acknowledging grief and allowing ourselves to mourn our lost loves. A part of us goes away forever when we lose a loved one. It will never be the same before. “Forest” encapsulates these emotions beautifully in the emotional vocals and also in the piano0based melody. You can hear such emotions as grief and sadness in both the lyrics and melodically. Wildlife Freeway did an amazing job conveying these feelings in “Forest”.

That each part of the relationship has to work together to be equal. However, be careful of one’s winter as it might beautiful, but actually has a cold, unwelcoming touch.
“Harder to Breathe” is a gorgeous folk-rock tune. It has those bittersweet, honest lyrics that talk about a love story.
