Crisp N' Fresh Vids: Is Mara Hruby's Marley Rendition The One You're Feeling?

Tuesday, January 18, 2011

Before we get started, I know what you're thinking: Another rendition of Bob Marley's "Is This Love"? Jeez, Marley did other stuff.... I was this way too, especially when we just got through hearing Bilal and Corinne Bailey Rae take on the track, plus have department store smooth jazz versions to endure. It is just the go-to Marley cover for any genre, and sometimes I get weary. 

But....I like how newcomer Mara Hruby takes on the Marley classic, so I had to share this. She has even better covers on her EP, From Her Eyes, one I introduced you guys to before the year slipped through the hourglass, but this tribute is a nice and melodic start. The song even has a sweet little video of Hruby taking us through a calming evening of book shopping and carousel riding in New York City. So give Hruby a chance if you haven't.

  1. Thanks for posting this. Love it - and thanks for turning us on to her - I agree - her covers bring a fresh take on great songs and I like the twist here of "city love" (makes me a bit homesick seeing The Strand, Radio City, ...) I also like this classic look that she sometimes pulls out in her wardrobe and hairstyles.
