Michael Persall- Acoustic Covers

I can never resist a good acoustic cover of a pop song, and this guy does them exceptionally well. He’s a gifted singer and effectively adapts his voice to suit the mood and intention of each song. He covers everyone from Drake and Beyonce to Bob Dylan and Bon Iver. His most ambitious choice is Disclosure’s “Latch,” which features Sam Smith’s vocals, and he does an impressive job with it. Check out a few of his covers below and see more on his youtube channel:

Disclosure ft. Sam Smith “Latch”

Drake “Hold On, We’re Going Home”

Bon Iver “Skinny Love” and others

Beyonce “Drunk In Love”

Republic of Wolves- “Like You Do” (Taking Back Sunday acoustic cover)


The Republic of Wolves recorded a beautiful acoustic cover of Taking Back Sunday’s “Like You Do,” a song from their recently released album “Happiness Is.” They definitely did justice to the original song, and I feel like Taking Back Sunday would wholeheartedly approve.

They have a couple more acoustic covers on their YouTube page that are also worth checking out. “I Need My Girl” by The National and “Jealous” by Beyonce.
