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.
