This is a collection of songs by The Everly Brothers as covered by The Sorry Kisses, in tribute to the recent passing of Phil Everly.
The Everly Brothers were always a massive influence on the music of myself and Hayley. I had the fortune of seeing them live at Manchester Apollo a few years ago and it was an honour to see the way that they could still perform with effortless skill and integrity.
The sadness brought by the passing of Phil Everly led to myself and Hayley wanting to revisit the great music of the Everly Brothers by covering a few of their songs.
A few disclaimers about this little project just to make sure that nobody gets the wrong idea:
1. We realise the impossibility of trying to even approximate the greatness of The Everly Brothers. They made, in my opinion, the most beautiful music recorded in the last century, and to even get close to the magic of their recordings was an impossible task. So, myself and Hayley gave ourselves twenty four hours to see how many songs of theirs we could learn and cover. We hope you enjoy the results.
2. In no way are we seeking to profit from this. The downloads are for free, and we'd recommend you check out their original recordings to see how great their music was, and still is. In particular if one person reading this could listen to the original Everly Brothers recording of 'Maybe Tomorrow', then our job is done.
Thanks for listening,
Sam and Hayley (The Sorry Kisses)
