This is an old video of New York’s U-Melt performing cover of Seal’s “Crazy” on New Years Eve at the Highland Ballroom. Jim Laughlin of moe. was kind enough to drop by and help out. The vocals a little flat and could be a little more “power balladry” but still it’s kind of a cool cover choice.
I show this because U-Melt have just released a batch of spring tour dates starting today in their hometown.
As for Seal, well that guy is my hero. He had like three or four good songs and then totally cashed out by impregnating Heidi Klum.
