Love “Jamie’s Cryin'” as much as we do? Want to hear a jazzy makeover? Sure you do.
Now, keep an open mind! We appreciate it when bands that aren’t primarily rock ‘n’ roll take a chance with their own interpretation of a Van Halen song.
The Erica Lyn Everest Trio from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania took on the Van Halen classic ahead of the band’s show at Hershey this weekend.
Everest told PennLive.com she decided to take on this song because she believed it was one of the Van Halen songs that was in her comfort zone lyrically and sonically.
“Van Halen’s kind of not our style and we thought it’d be cool to cover something totally different and make it our own,” she said.
She tells VHND, “It was really fun putting our own twist onto the song and it turned out pretty cool!”
“Jamie’s Cryin,'” a song about a woman resisting a one night stand, is featured on Van Halen’s 1978 self-titled debut album.
Everest said she and her bandmates play shows nearly every weekend. Fans can keep up with her show schedule on her Facebook.
