Live Acoustic Cover Series is a series of covers of some of Breeze‘s favourite songs that were recorded live to camera at St John the Baptist Church in Harleston, Norfolk and at Poplar Farm. Each video is recorded using multiple cameras so that a single performance can be viewed from multiple angles. All of the songs are performed with Breeze‘s own unique style giving each one a different feel than the originals. The series has a theme of pain from relationships with each song covering a different aspect, pain from the death of a loved one, from someone close losing their way, or from relationships that are seriously troubled.
The songs in the series are:
Supermarket Flowers was originally released by Ed Sheeran on his 2017 album ÷. It is about packing things away and clearing up after a loved one has died in hospital, and about the thoughts about them. Breeze gives a moving, personal version of this song with light accompaniment that really brings out the sorrow of someone who has lost a parent that they were close to.
Youngblood was originally released by 5 Seconds Of Summer on their 2018 album Youngblood and as a single. It is about the break up of a relationship where the singer is being strung on by someone who is no longer interested but can’t end the relationship because there just might be something in it. Breeze really brings out the anguish of this song, mixing it with resignation to the fact that things aren’t likely to change leaving you with the distinct impression of someone who wants the pain to end but still wants the relationship and can’t see anyway to have both.
Mercy was originally released by Shawn Mendes on his 2016 album Illuminate and as a single. It is about the singer begging for mercy and to be let free from a relationship that brings them nothing but pain even though there is no malice in the one they love. Breeze understates this song, being almost deadpan during the verses which gives a greater power to the chorus where she pleads for mercy without having to go overboard. This gives the song a feeling of seeing the solution but being unable to do anything with be released.
Leave A Light On was originally released by Tom Walker on his 2017 album What A Time To Be Alive and as a single. It is about a friends who is addicted to drugs, and saying that you’ll leave a light on for them so that they will always have a safe place to come. In this song Breeze conveys the frustration of watching a friend self-destruct knowing that there is nothing you can do until the want help, and combines this with the compassion of letting them know that you will always be there when they need you.
Hot n Cold was originally released by Katy Perry on her 2008 album One Of The Boys and as a single. It is about a relationship that has problems because one of the partners has severe mood swings. Breeze has a little fun with this song going more with the lightness of the melody rather than the darkness of the lyrics but still manages to give as amazing a performance as she does for the other songs in this series.
This series of videos were released as a part of the build up to the release of Breeze‘s new EP that will be released on 26 April, with a single, Under Your Skin being released on Good Friday, 19 April.You can follow Breeze on her Official Website, on Facebook, on Twitter, on ReverbNation, on SoundCloud, and on her YouTube channel.
