Australian twice Grammy-nominated guitarist, songwriter and singer TOMMY EMMANUEL will release his brand new 16-track duets album Accomplice One on January 19th via Players Club/Mascot Label Group.
The Accomplice One album of original songs and re-workings features a dazzling variety of guests including Mark Knopfler, J.D. Simo, Rodney Crowell, Jerry Douglas, Amanda Shires & Ricky Skaggs.
You can check out the brilliant cover of Madonna’s Borderline (feat. Amanda Shires) below, taken from the album.
It is a delicately nuanced interpretation with a slow nostalgic sensation, intense vocals and an interesting cool-country take.
Tommy says: “This was an early hit for Madonna which was brought to my attention by a brilliant artist from Sweden named Theresa Andersson. ”
“When we toured through Europe and Scandinavia, we did this song in our show and it really got a great response from the audiences. Amanda Shires is known for her western swing and Americana style, but was adventurous enough to give this song a go. She nailed it.”
