Don Vedda - Talking Body [ New Single ]

Recommended Posts

Awesome new track from Don Vedda, a really cool cover of the Tove Lo track Talking Body.

For those of you who have never heard of Don Vedda he is a self-taught multi-instrumentalist who has also studied guitar, piano, and voice, with a deep understanding and appreciation of all types of music, including rock, metal, pop, R&B, blues and jazz. Don’s debut EP, released 8/13/2014 (recorded and produced by Brian Grider in Los Angeles CA), is a collection of 6 compositions that are a sonic-boom hybrid of these styling’s, each with a unique identity all its own.

Prior to launching his solo project, Don Vedda performed with Jaime’s Elsewhere, Casino Madrid, Oceans, and most recently as lead guitarist for Republic Records recording artist, Dev.

 

His 2014 EP comes highly recommended and worth getting, some tracks from it.

Nice, that 'Love at First Sight' is really cool. Would be great to be a multi instrumentalist. Even though most of the songs here are in the modern hard rock vein, there are still glimpses of his versatility on display here. Good stuff.

Very cool. I like this plenty. Not sure why he hired Billy Ray Cyrus as his barber for the 'Love at first sight' clip, but it does not work, at all. Lucky for him the song does.

I actually haven't been able to get this song out of my head since I heard it. I have no idea what a Tove Lo is or how the original song sounds, but I love this version. My "it" song for the moment.

Just saw a random note that apparently this fella has an album called 'Hell of a Night' to be released on 1st of September. Mega excited about this one.

I have been meaning to google this guy to see where he's at, so thanks for this post. I am such a massive fan of this chap. The musical tightness of all his songs - tight production and his passionate delivery... it's all working for me. That 'Hell Of A Night' song will be sitting up somewhere high in my lists this year. I dig the other two too.

very very nice indeed. I'll go even further and say that's the best modern rock I've heard in at least 5 years.

I dig it. muchly

Brilliant. When is this album due for release? I need something to play alongside the sole other good release of 2018 so far, in LeBrock.

Top quality song. If this thing ever gets release, it's going to be definite top 5'er, I'd assume. Just wish it'd actually happen.

Killer song. If I'm being honest, it's kind of "cheapened" by that filmclip. I don't understand the significance of it to the song at all. Looks like a clip for a party song or something... not this one. Bad blend, but excellent song (again). Where's the goddamn album?

I've basically got the 7 singles Don Vedda has released over the last year in a playlist on Spotify - if he releases this lot on an album it will be no 1 for me. every song is killer. 

Just love this Dude. Best modern rock since the demise of Destine imo

I just did that today - put the seven songs in a Don Vedda folder for my 2018 playlist too.

Yep, only thing that comes close to LeBrock so far this year.

10 great songs though. This guy is a talent. 

Easily sitting in my top 5

    • well I FB messaged WoA and they replied that they are still working on the album so I guess that will be 2019 now. 
    • is Work of Art even out this year? Have not seen any news on that one?? 
    • My most anticipated release ( except Work Of Art and Magic Dance)    Haken  - Vector (October 26/Inside Out Music)   Tracklist: 
      1. Clear
      2. The Good Doctor
      3. Puzzle Box
      4. Veil
      5. Nil By Mouth
      6. Host
      7. A Cell Divides
    • Me likey! It's not as heavy as their older material, but seems to have a bit more lush musicality. I like the synth work. Polishes the edges a bit. Die-hards already hate it, and die-hards *always* hate when a band goes more melodic, so it can't possibly be bad.   
    • New Teaser - Fantasy 2.0 - from the new album Aldo Nova 2.0 Aldo Nova 2.0 Release date 10/19/2018  
    • JD Miller - World War X Lifer - S/T Midnite City - S/T
    • Btw, I'd trade hard for Arcturus - Sham Mirrors on vinyl. ❤️

      Victor Lundberg – Backing vocals on ‘Shadowdance’ As Hank reveals: “They say that life is not about being who you are; it’s about becoming who you want to be. After almost a decade with Houston I’ve learned a lot about myself and the music that I love. These songs are me, all me, singing my heart out for the world to hear and this album has been a dream of mine, something to cross off the bucket list if you will”. The album was produced, mixed and mastered by Mats Ericsson at BoomBridge Studios. Recorded at BoomBridge Studios & Erix Music & Production Studios. Executive Producer – Hank Erix. HANK ERIX is the frontman of the Swedish AOR band HOUSTON. A band that have been a bright star in the AOR / Melodic rock sky over their last five releases. The band received the best AOR album 2010 accolade in Classic Rock Magazine and have appeared on several impressive festivals throughout Europe such as Sweden Rock and Download Festival. Over almost a decade with HOUSTON, HANK ERIX has made quite a name for himself in the melodic rock world and it’s finally time for the release of his solo debut ‘Nothing but Trouble’. The album features songs that has been marinating for years and sees the band leader of HOUSTON taking a bold step forward from the expected HOUSTON sound and sees Hank flexing his more hard rocking muscles. Tagging along with HANK ERIX on this 1700cc motorcycle ride of an album are members of Therion, Degreed, Art Nation, Wildness, Kryptonite, Palace, Gutterdämerung & Adrenaline Rush.
