Words from Jesse

My first-ever stylized, recorded and released cover song! I've actually been playing this song for about a decade. In 2011, my friend, Shannon, asked if I could play this Rancid song; of course, it wasn't in my repertoire, and it was very far from my style. I took that as an opportunity to try it on, and I came up with this version. I recorded a simple video of it in Montreal and posted it on Youtube. I have never released a recorded cover song for legal issues—or shall I say for lack of understanding the legalities of such an endeavour. However, in 2021 I came to understand the Music Modernization Act in the USA and how it affected me globally; I decided it was my time to release a cover song. I may even release some more!
