The Sheryl Crow cover was performed as part of a three-song encore wrapping up Waxahatchee’s show in Brooklyn.
Indie sensations Snail Mail and Waxahatchee have teamed up to perform a live cover of Sheryl Crow’s brilliant '90s track 'Strong Enough'.
During a show in Brooklyn this week, Waxahatchee (aka Katie Crutchfield) invited Snail Mail (aka Lindsey Jordan) to join her and her backing band for the cover. Crutchfield's set at Elsewhere also included renditions of Dolly Parton’s ‘Light Of A Clear Blue Morning’ and ‘Long Wave’ by Bonny Doon.
The overall performance was comprised a total of 23 songs, including all 11 tracks from Crutchfield’s fifth album as Waxahatchee, Saint Cloud. She and her band are currently touring across the US in support of the record, which arrived last March and earned huge critical acclaim.
‘Strong Enough’ was initially released in August of 1993 as part of Crow’s debut album, Tuesday Night Music Club.
Crutchfield’s cover of the song comes as the latest in as string of renditions she’s delivered in recent times. In April, Waxahatchee tackled tracks by Dolly Parton, Bruce Springsteen and Lucinda Williams. In May, the artist teamed up with Whitney for a take on John Denver’s ‘Take Me Home, Country Roads’.
Jordan is set to release her second album as Snail Mail, Valentine, on November 5 via Matador. Thus far, exciting singles from the album have come in the form of its title track and ‘Ben Franklin’.
