After having done a short string of west coast tour dates with Walk off the Earth, miss Selah Sue recently joined the group for the most recent bit in their cover series. "Can't Take My Eyes Off You" by Lauryn Hill is given a cutesy alt-pop treatment with Selah jumping in about midway adding some spice. Have fun bouncing around.
Selah Sue today releases her video for the forlorn nostalgic video "Fade Away." A young couple frolics about New York City, fooling around about town and creating a little youthful trouble. A sweet love blossoms while Selah in the background sings about fading away and ultimately being better off without the partner. Sadly, everything isn't always meant to be.
Just having released her debut album a couple months back, Selah Sue sat down with us to talk about her journey and her influences that led up to Selah Sue the album. Selah also shared a backstage ritual, a memorable phone call, and a live rooftop performance, amongst other juicy bits. So endearing this young starlet is - so glad we got to catch up!
Giant Step contributor Maiya Norton kicks off this new exclusive video series, Covers, on our Tribeca rooftop. Many thanks to our film man, Rashid Zakat as well.
Be sure to catch Selah on tour supporting Allen Stone and Walk Off The Earth!
