I’m On Fire – Bruce Springsteen (Cover)

“I’m On Fire” is my favourite Bruce Springsteen song. It was one of 7 songs from his Born In The USA album that made it into the top 10 in the states, so was obviously written when Bruce was at the top of his game. If you enjoyed this cover, it would be great if … [Read More]

‘Look at Miss Ohio’ is the first track of Gillian Welch’s fifth studio album Soul Journey, released in 2003.
