Mara Hruby – Simply Beautiful
Since bursting onto the scene back in 2010 with her stunning From Her Eyes EP, which featured stripped back covers of everyone from Mos Def to Bob Marley, Oakland, California native Mara Hruby has kept a relatively low profile but to celebrate the EP’s 2 year anniversary, she’s released a brand new cover of Al Green’s Simply Beautiful.
In true Mara fashion, it was recorded using only a guitar, her voice and objects found in her home, including spoons, loose change, a metal buddha head and a scarf and I think it’s fair to say that the song’s title isn’t too far from the truth, at all!
Check out Simply Beautiful below and if you still haven’t got a copy of the From Her Eyes EP, I’d highly recommend doing so right here.
