Written by the legendary UK musician Paul Weller, Babybrutha reminds us of our often-selfish ways that need to be extinguished quickly before they ruin our lives on ‘The Boy Who Cried Wolf‘ (The Style Council cover).
Babybrutha is a Chicago-based four-piece funk/rock/soul band founded by the lead vocalist and bassist Tim Lee. He makes that soulfully relevant type of music that strikes passionately into your heart, and has you thinking reflectively about your life.
”Paul Weller originally wrote this classic for The Style Council and it is the only cover on the album. Tim Lee has always been a fan of Weller’s and this is one of his favorite songs. The lyrics are the same but the arrangement is all Babybrutha.” ~ Babybrutha
This is the true story about wishing you could take back the moment you took that special soul for granted until they stopped answering your calls, as you think about your actions and vow to never let this happened again.
With a softly spoken vocal ability that shines through so peacefully, there is such a calming nature intertwined into this classic cover song which has you enjoying his terrific guitar-playing. This is a man who usually performs his own music and was so inspired by this true classic – that he felt was important to share this honest track – in this often-selfish world that needs to hear this message.
‘The Boy Who Cried Wolf‘ (The Style Council cover) from the Chicago-based multi-talented funk/rock/soul act Babybrutha, is a new release that sends a tribute to the incredibly skilled songwriter Paul Weller, while also showing his qualities with a peaceful display that will have your feet tapping along. This is a very introspective track which has you thinking so deeply, as you wish you could have some moments back to change what transpired before in your life.
