BROOKS YOUNG BAND‘s new single “Promises” is a song originally made famous by Eric Clapton in 1978 (released on his album Backless).
For the single, the Brooks Young Band features Ruth Clapton, the daughter of the great guitar legend. Brooks Young and Ruth became friends during the pandemic and started working on some new sounds. Ruth always loved her Dad’s Promises recording, so Brooks & Ruth decided to record a new version of the much-loved track.
You can hear how well their voices harmonize in this gracious country-rock tune.
And the New England-based vocalist/lead guitarist Brooks Young adds fluent bluesy guitar licks under his and Ruth Clapton’s vocals. Ruth’s ardent, generously responsive vocals might remind you of the classic harmony sung initially by Marcy Levy on Backless.
Brooks Young has toured extensively throughout the USA, sharing the stage with acts such as B.B. King, George Thorogood, John Waite, REO Speedwagon, Pat Benatar, The Wallflowers, Boyd Tinsley of Dave Matthews Band, Byran Adams, Robert Cray, and many others.
