Naked, exposed, and pure, this live cover of Tim Buckley's "Song To The Siren" by Mikky Ekko is a real "stop, stand still, and pay attention" kind of track. Recorded during his session for San Francisco-based music website Yours Truly, Mikky Ekko relies upon nothing but his guitar and enchanting voice to tell the song's spine-tingly melancholic tale.
Drifting over the guitar's slow moving, ailing chords, Mikky Ekko's fragile, vulnerable vocals and touching lyrics are a truly spell-binding combination.
