Blaenavon Cover Elliott Smith

As part of the new Torch Songs project...

Blaenavon have delivered a tasteful Elliott Smith cover as part of the new Torch Songs project.

Music has the power to inspire, to speak to people at dark and lonely points in their life. The new Torch Songs initiative has been launched by CALM and coincides with International Man's Day.

Blaenavon chose to cover Elliott Smith's wonderful 'Everything Reminds Me Of Her' and it's a supple, simple rendition of a genuine classic.

Ben Gregory offered the following about his choice of song:

“Elliott Smith is my number one and for me, nobody else really gets close. In the end, his tale was so tragic but the affect he’s had on so many people and so many of my friends in particular has been pretty incredible. This song didn’t rescue me from feeling blue, but it was so beautiful and relate-able that it really helped having someone perfectly underpin the way I was feeling at the time. I now look back on that time with fond nostalgia, and that’s largely down to this track. So, thank you, Elliott – you are the man.”
