The trip hop genre is among the best ones when it comes to covering a song! Just listen to Mimi Page's rework of The Offspring anthem "Self Esteem". Vivid, emotional, powerful, she has preserved the core of the original while completely giving it a new twist. I can't believe I have slept on this cover for more than eight months.
Besides the awesome covers that she does many of her original songs have been soundtracked in several films and tv shows. For more info, please visit her soundcloud profile.
