The North Bay Fire Relief Benefit Concert at Gundlach Bundschu Winery in Sonoma went down exactly a week ago, and we’re still feeling very despondent that we couldn’t make it up for the show. Not only was it for a very good cause, but we would’ve loved to have been mesmerized by Devon Baldwin again. The now Los Angeles based San Francisco native both lifts our spirits and tears our hearts asunder with a gorgeously devastating new track. The ever stunning siren has presented us with a beautifully moving, chiffon stirring cover of Drake’s Shot For Me, featuring a few slightly altered choice lyrics to “make it extra topical”, as Devon herself said. The singer songwriter re-unites with her go-to producer and friend Christoph Andersson on the heartstrings tugging ballad. It’s a synthesis we’ve praised with much zeal in the past, and the union proves to be rewarding once again as Andersson sculpts an immaculate and austere electro-based soundscape to cushion Devon Baldwin’s aerial fluttering, pure and silvery voice. It’s a minimalistic song with no bells and whistles to hide behind, but there’s nothing that needs hiding when it comes to Devon Baldwin’s pristine vocals and heartfelt performance. She lays it all out. Shot For Me has never felt more raw, vulnerable, and sincere than on this deeply moving cover, which even works in some well suited Marvin’s Room. Devon Baldwin’s Shot For Me can also be streamed via Spotify, here, and downloaded from iTunes, here.
