PREMIERE: Shlomo Franklin Covers Guns N’ Roses “Sweet Child Of Mine”

There are tons of Guns N’ Roses from “November Rain”, “Welcome to the Jungle” to “Sweet Child of Mine”. In regards to the last one, NY’s very own Shlomo Franklin has released a stripped down, acoustic version of the song. The harmonies and broken vocals are reminiscent of other big names such as Leonard Cohen, Thom Yorke and Damien Rice.

Within seconds of hearing Shlomo Franklin, you’ll believe he’s next in the long line of inspired American singer-songwriters. His songs are both original and familiar, like found memories or crazy consecutive instances of synchronicity. His vocals are haunting, his chords resonate in your soul, and his passion for music’s evident in his sympathetic eyes and infectious smile. Growing up in Bethel, New York, when he wasn’t milking cows, Shlomo was vibing off the spiritual influence of nearby Woodstock, and later, absorbing the music of other influences, including Neil Young, Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, and Johnny Cash.
