Talk about 2 worlds colliding - this Ghost Beach cover of "Vultures" by John Mayer is unexpected and very cool for a number of reasons.....and I am tickled pink over what my ears are currently hearing! When I was a wee las, I started working in the music industry with John Mayer oohhhhh....12 years ago, just when he was starting to do big things. Room For Squares was still on Aware Records, he was still playing to 50 people in small clubs - and we were young and excited about ...... everything! I then started working at Sony (Columbia Records) who picked up Mr. Mayer and worked is record on that end.
Fast forward 12 years, a band I have worked with and who I LOVE - Ghost Beach - just KILLED this John Mayer cover. The two artists couldn't be more different, however Ghost Beach was able to translate the soul of the original song into their poppy synthed-out version perfectly. I may not be as young now, but I still hold that child like enthusiasm for Ghost Beach and the music they are making now much like I did for John so many years ago! Fuck yea Ghost Beach, this pretty much made my life! Grab this track as a free download!
