Sean Hoots covers Boyz II Men 'It's So Hard To Say Goodbye To Yesterday' for #CoverClub a special brand of Philly covers
Our first release from the 2.0 Session of Cover Club at Nomad Recording Studio features the boundless Sean Hoots. Sean Hoots had been on the Root Down In The Shadow radar since catching him for the first time at the March 2013 Sofar Sounds Philadelphia show! Since a well-rounded knowledge of the Philadelaphia music scene is certainly incomplete with knowing Sean Hoots and/or Hoots and Hellmouth. Sean was a natural choice to include on the series.
'It's So Hard To Say Goodbye To Yesterday' was first made famous in the 70's by G. C. Camerson and it was later re-popularized by the legendary Philly R&B outfit Boyz II Men in the 90's. When he first moved to Philly eight years ago, Sean moved across the street from the creative arts high school where Boyz II Men, the Roots and many others started years ago. It's no surprise then how Sean feels about the aforementioned tune: "The a capella Boyz II Men version had always really struck me."
Check out his soulful rendition and compare it to the original below, and be sure to check back in on Wednesday for a Sean Hoots' original.
