Video: Mara Hruby & Van Hunt – “Respect” (Aretha Franklin Cover)

Mara Hruby and Van Hunt come together for a spine-tingling rendition of Aretha Franklin’s “Respect” in this video. Careful not to faint.

New Track: Denitia Odigie – “Weekend” (Studio Version)

 

Singer Denitia Odigie has got an addictive voice and style that sounds something like a blend of Mara Hruby, Jennah Bell, Fiona Apple, and Norah Jones. The good folks of Okayplayer put us on to this lady with their premier of the studio version of her “Weekend” tune, which you can disappear into below.

The song will be on her upcoming album, Air, Light. For a look into where the song originally came from, take a listen to her Songs For Sunsets + Dream Suite EP below.

Bay Area songbird Mara Hruby today released a new video to accompany another From Her Eyes track. In “Alright,” Mara covers the popular Jamiroquai tune with signature class. The video is bright and glimmery, all while still down to earth – in it Mara is joined by Bay Area band The Park as they jam out at Different Fur Studios in San Francisco.

Catch Mara at Yoshi’s Oakland tonight and at the Blue Note next Saturday, July 28.

Some of you met Mara Hruby via an artist spotlight we did back in June, while others probably still are needing to get their life together and get put on. Here’s another chance.

The latest from this Oakland based jazzy folky songstress is her video for her cover of Van Hunt’s “Character.”

The video is a warm dreamy documentation of Mara getting ready for an afternoon of strumming and singing with beautiful attention to all the pretty visual details that make up miss Hruby’s delicate beauty. At the end of the video, find a snippet of “The Love Below,” an original tune to be feature on Mara’s upcoming album.

So again, if you missed Mara’s EP of covers, From Her Eyes, you might want to catch her doing her paying homage to some of the greats of our time – The Roots, Andre 3000, D’Angelo, Van Hunt, Bob Marley, and Jamiroquai.
