Q313 Amy Winehouse Tribute CD preview: The Balearic Folk Orchestra feat Olivia Chaney cover He Can Only Hold Her
Our new issue, Q313, which has just hit newsstands comes with an exclusive Amy Winehouse tribute CD to go alongside our extensive cover feature on the late singer.
Get the magazine now to get your hands on a copy of Back To... Back To Black, but in the meantime we're showcasing a different act each day who have covered a track from the album, today we hear from The Balearic Folk Orchestra who together with Olivia Chaney, have tackled He Can Only Hold Her.
Stephen Cracknell (guitar): "It was interesting to do because the original is built around samples. Olivia Chaney [vocals, piano (pictured)] and I sketched out the chords, Serafina Steer [harp] added her parts the following day and Olivia nailed her vocal in one take. She found a way of making it expressive and personal. I once worked with [singer-songwriter] Liam Bailey - Amy released two EPs by him on her own label [Lioness]. She really helped him and believed in his music. I'll always remember that."
