Friday Tunes: Sweet Child of Mine Cover by Taken by Trees

I’m always looking for great new music since I spend so much time writing solo. Every Friday I’m going to post a new favorite by a less well-known musician. I tend towards women singer-songwriters, though I love great hip-hop and classic rock too. And I’m partial to a variety of indy music from the mid-90’s through today. Suggestions welcome for videos to feature!

I love this cover by Taken by Trees; it’s like a whole new song interpreted by this group!
