erykah-badu

The Unused Word is a singer, producer and instrumentalist from Vienna. Here is her cover of Erykah Badu’s The Healer.

We’ve shown you BINKBEATS reconstruct the beat from scratch, now hear Erykah Badu’s The Healer in a minimalist acoustic form. The cover artist in question is The Unused Word (real name Anna), a singer, producer and instrumentalist from Vienna. She started producing in 2005 and picked up Logic Pro three years later, contributing to her degree in composition at the Music University of Vienna. For her Erykah Badu cover, the track stripped down to nothing but vocals, Rhodes piano and occasional twinkling chimes. There’s a soothing aura in its simplicity and the vibrato of the Rhodes piano, warm and old.
