The New Year kicking in, Crowe pulled her piano stool over to the kitchen table, sat down and recorded a version simple and true. We have this live recording, too - unadorned, as well, save for by honesty:

"For today’s ep, I tried to pick L.Cohen covers I haven’t played before. But you should check out covers by @allisoncrowe22 - I’ve played all... Would help if I got that Twitter account right! @Allison_Crowe - and it’s her birthday today! Check out her amazing L Cohen covers!... She does a beautiful Hallelujah, Chelsea Hotel No. 2, Bird on a Wire and Famous Blue Raincoat. All great." https://twitter.com/Coverville/status/798998064635793410

Spotlight on... November 16
"Happy birthday to Canadian singer-songwriter @Allison_Crowe. Hear her covers of Stones, Pearl Jam, Cyndi Lauper +more" https://twitter.com/covermesongs/status/798977733803921408
“There are some voices that speak (or sing) for themselves. You know the ones. Voices where it doesn’t matter what they sing. Voices where it doesn’t really matter what instruments support them. Solomon Burke has such a voice. Jeff Buckley had it. Allison Crowe has it too...”
Happy Birthday, Allison :)
