VV Brown covered Gwen Guthrie's hit "Padlock" as part of HMV's My Inspiration series, where artists choose musical influences and pay tribute by covering their music.
VV's cover, "Padlock," is layered with big vocals, synths and power chords, as any 80s pop hit should be. Now we know where she gets it.

The lovely Ms. VV Brown does not waste time. While she's touring internationally, she's steadily dropping acoustic videos and low-fi recordings on the web. Download her cover of the Rolling Stones' track, "Miss You" (and turn the volume up!). If this soul-drenched version of the rock song sounds familiar, you might be remembering the days of Musiq Soulchild and his 2003 album Soulstar. (Revisit Musiq's version here)
Travelling Like the Light, the upcoming full-length album, will be released in the US on Capitol Records on February 9, 2010.
