Exclusive Sydney Franklin Live Cover Session Of "Smother Me"

Following the release of her latest single "Make It Hurt" followed by the accompany official music video, R&B/Soul singer #SydneyFranklin is not showing any signs of slowing down.

Franklin recently did a cover of "Olivia Nelson's Smother Me and it is amazing to the ears. "I chose to cover "Smother Me" because I was hooked the second I heard it," confessed Franklin. "Not many songs can do that to me, but Olivia Nelson's song did. I think it's beautiful how much space there is in the song itself and my band loved it too, so that's always a plus. But, on an emotional side I really love how she shows how much she wants that one person in particular, because I've never heard someone sing it in that context before. It's completely original!," she added.

Franklin has performed for iHeartMedia, SiriusXM, as well as making her debut appearance at this year’s SXSW Conference & Festival. She’s performed at NYC’s famed Iridium jazz club, Rockwood Music Hall and DC’s own Union Stage.She recently received Honorable Mention recognition ​from the 2018 Unsigned Only Music Competition for "Make It Hurt," in the Vocal Performance category.
