While faffing about on the net checking out The Decemberists, I came across a live cover that Petra Haden did with them back in 2005. There are few people who can hit those Kate Bush high notes. I love the violin at the end too.
A talented violinist and vocalist, Petra Haden has performed and collaborated with a slew of other bands including The Twilight Singers, Beck, Luscious Jackson, Jimmy Eat World, Queens Of The Stone Age, Green Day and Weezer.
You can find a few of her covers floating around the net as well – in fact, you can grab a couple more right here.
Visit her myspace to check out her versions of Journey’s ‘Don’t Stop Believin’ and Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller’.
