Published Sep 08, 2015Toronto's the Sky Valley Band may have just come together this summer, but their latest video harkens back to a much earlier time. The roots-rock outfit have covered Bill Withers' "Grandma's Hands" for the latest edition of the Current Sessions, and Exclaim! has got the exclusive premiere.
Channelling the soulful blues vibes of the original, the new rendition is carried by the vocals of Jess Rempel and lead guitarist Matt Bagley, with drummer Sean Sweeney and bassist Jordan Ward rounding out the lineup and filling in the sound.
The song leads the band's recently released debut split single along with their own "Cold," which is available now. You can also catch the group live in Toronto at the Cameron House on November 5.
For right now, though, check out the stripped down, rootsy, filmed-outdoors footage of their take on "Grandma's Hands" in the player below.
