The Tea Party – The Maker (Live at Music Feeds Studio)
The Tea Party were recently in Australia touring in support of their eighth album The Ocean At The End and they stopped by the Music Feeds Studio to perform a few tracks for us.
One of those tracks was a cover of Daniel Lanois’ The Maker which the band actually performed for triple j’s Like A Version in 2006. It’s a staple of the band’s live show still nearly a decade later.
The band does an emotional, organic version of the song with frontman Jeff Martin’s deep, gravelly voice cutting right through.
Dave Matthews Band has also recorded a version of the track.
