Tonight was my school’s dance showcase. I was particularly excited to see the piece that was choreographed to King of Leon’s – Use Somebody. I was pleasantly surprised to find the music was actually a cover of Use Somebody. I immediately went and looked it up. I learned the singer was a Dutch-American singer/songwriter Laura Jansen. She originally started her career in Los Angel’s coffeehouse scene. She soon gained popularity in the Netherlands! She classifies herself under indie/indie pop.
I have to say that I love her cover of Use Somebody. I might just like it a tad bit better than the original. Her use of the piano and her voice makes it perfect to fall asleep to. I think it also emphasizes the flow and powerful lyrics. Here is her music video to Use Somebody:
