Ellie Schmidly – Wild Is The Wind

The heavenly voice of Ellie Schmidly returns to York Calling with an incredible cover of Wild Is The Wind.

By Graeme Smith

This is an unusual version of this classic track, made famous by Nina Simone and David Bowie. It’s unrecognisable from those more famous versions and that’s what makes it feel so fresh. While Bowie’s interpretation is full of mourning, Schmidly’s is injected with hope and brightness.

I could listen to Ellie’s voice forever, and first became enchanted by it when listening to previous release Where To Begin. She’s definitely an artist to add to your playlist. Check out Wild Is The Wind below.
