Covercentric: Alex Hepburn Covers Neneh Cherry’s “Woman”

Alex Hepburn is a London-based up-and-coming artist signed to Warner, and seems to be getting a push in France. Her sound is more on the serious “real music” side, but it’s her torch-soul cover of Neneh Cherry‘s 1996 Portishead-esque single “Woman” that caught my attention. Alex’s got a raw, raspy, smoky voice that suits bare-bone soul/blues. She has a tendency to sound a bit affected on her own tracks, but for the cover, she’s got the balance just right. She’s definitely one to watch out for in 2013.

  1. Woman’s World is a really great song and deserves to have great tributes like this one. I always found some of Neneh Cherrys songs really strong and “Kootchy” is another powerfull one.
