Covering Abbey Smith, aka Yebba, PenelopeDarling releases a version of her song ‘My Mind’.
An amazing range, a powerful voice from bass vocals to higher pitches along with a robust vibrato, this is an excellent take on ‘My Mind; adding to the original song a pop feel and a lot more instruments. Currently based in London where she’s mainly performing, PenelopeDarling draws inspiration from artists such as Sam Smith and Adele but also shows a big passion for Yebba – the reason why she decided to cover the song.
It is to be expected to get new material that she’s likely to drop in a couple of months time.
Hailing from West Memphis, Arkansas, Yebba Smith is carrying the weight of a town that brought us such musical juggernauts as Grammy Award winner Shirley Brown, Blues legend Junior Wells and of course, The Memphis Horns. Her chillingly soulful, yet soft voice gives you the impression that she has no problem flying that flag, as she commands the stage with a pain in her voice that is enough to encapsulate any audience.
You don’t have to be from west of the Mississippi to enjoy appreciate this little gem. You will believe the words she says as much as she does. Her track ‘My Mind’ is one of many that will guide your mind a yonder to ex-partners and long-ago loved ones; to that first love that you let get away. More than just a tear jerker, she has a style that is all her own and a really exciting prospect for the up and coming music scene.
