Karmin’s Killin’ Covers!

Posted on: April 18, 2011

If you have never heard of Karmin you are totally missing out! I first discovered Karmin when they collaborated with Aston, who I blogged about a month ago. For those of you that don’t know Aston is a group of 23 and 24 year olds who take pop songs and make classical arrangements out of them (check out my post about Aston here!). Well, Aston and Karmin collaborated on Aston’s version of Adele’s “Someone Like You”, adding vocals to the instrumentals that Aston had already created. It was a great addition to an already great cover of the song!

Karmin is a musical duo made up of Amy and Nick. They met at Berklee College of Music in Boston and began to write songs together for school projects. They then decided to take their music to the next level and began performing as a duo around the east coast. Nick has a Classic Rock upbringing and a Jazz education, while Amy has R&B influence and a pop music background. The combination of these two musicians brought about the musical duo Karmin. They have a sound that mixes soul and passion into their music, with just enough pop to keep the audience intrigued.

Karmin is most known for their covers that they do. They have covered everything from Adele, Pink, Kanye West, Willow Smith, Usher, and much more! Their most recent cover (which is my absolute favorite!) is of Lil Wayne, Busta Rhymes, and Chris Brown’s “Look At Me Now”. Amy shows off everything she can do in this song. Not only does she sing, but this girl can rap! I’ve seen this song performed live by Lil Wayne and Busta Rhymes and Amy is definitely as good as both of them. In fact, Perez Hilton said she could be the white Nicki Minaj and I completely agree!

While Karmin is most known for their covers they do have original songs out there too. Their first CD “Inside Out” was released in May of 2010. Check out the “Look At Me Now” cover, their collaboration with Aston, and their original song “Take It All Away” below.
