We recently had the wonderful Bec Sandridge in the studio to breeze through a chilling cover of Cyndi Lauper’s I Drove All Night. Watch it below and try not to get goosebumps.
Bec flew onto our radar last year with her excellent single, Into The Fog, Into The Flame, a gorgeous tune dripping with 80s pop vibes and a shit load of charisma. We’ve been hooked ever since.
Ditching her usual setup (a full band some generous use of her trusty wah pedal) Sandridge turned the volume down for her rendition of the 1989 classic, opting for just piano and vocals. But to be honest, she’d never need anything else.
I Drove All Night was originally written by Billy Steinberg and Tom Kelly for Roy Orbison, who recorded his rendition in 1987 but never released the track until 1992, when Cyndi Lauper had already made the song famous with her release. Now Sandridge has absolutely made it her own.
