Glaswegian singer-songwriter Kerri Watt has shared the video for her cover of NEEDTOBREATHE’s ‘Let’s Stay Home Tonight’, taken from her upcoming EP, Chapter One.
Live-streams have become a normal part of life for artists over the past 8 months, with Kerri being no exception. Poking fun at the smoke and mirrors one can achieve with this concert format, Kerri has self-produced this clever little music video on a DIY budget without creating risk to crew members, as she puts it, “I thought it would be fun to portray the reality of putting on a live stream show and the minutes leading up to it; albeit with a little twist! Getting creative with music videos at home has been really fun and challenging; it’s amazing what you can make with a few house hold items and a half decent camera!”
Kerri says she choose to cover NEEDTOBREATHE not just because they are one of her favourite acts, but also because, “their music is a perfect blend of country, rock and pop – three of the genres prominent in my upcoming album. I loved the idea of doing a stripped back acoustic cover song with some country style picking and harmonies inspired by Southern American acts like The Chicks and Little Big Town.”
