BANDS: JOHN SMITH – JASMINE (JAI PAUL COVER)

Hinting tones of an early Bon Iver, Ben Howard or Dave Hosking of Boy & Bear, Birmingham-based John Smith gives his hairy predecessors a run for their money with this smouldering cover of XL prodigy Jai Paul’s ‘Jasmine’. Sporting a very fine beard himself, Smith’s shy Brummie demeanour and enticing vocal makes for the perfect cover of one of our favourite songs of 2012.

Featuring equally impressive songs such as England Rolls Away, John’s album ‘Great Lakes’ is out now, you can purchase your very own copy right HERE.
