If you haven’t succumb to the meditative charms of West Coast composer/producer Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith, you sure will after hearing her cover of Sade’s classic “By Your Side”. About the cover, Smith says: “Lovers Rock was the album I listened to the most when I was 15 and decided to start writing songs. Sade has always been a favorite vocalist of mine – so emotive and honest and true. To me, her voice glides naturally across genders and genres, which is a quality I also work to embody with my vocals. Sade is pure class in my book.” Over the synthesised soundscape, Smith’s vocals radiate an intimate warmth through the soothing production. The track is available as a free download. Listen below.
