Genealogy’s Armenian-American artist Tamar Kaprelian has been hard at work ahead of Eurovision 2015. Along with interacting with her new fans through social media and giving interviews, she has just released a solo acoustic version of this year’s Armenian entry, “Face The Shadow“.
This acoustic version is much softer than the dramatic studio version she sings with her five compatriots. It puts the spotlight firmly on Tamar and lets her show off her vocal talents even more. Lesser artists would crack without electronic backing, but Tamar shines even brighter. This is pure and simple — and simply amazing! The cute video, filmed on a New York City street with her friend Matt Koziol singing backing vocals and accompanying her on guitar, is also a delight.
What do y’all think of this version? Is the song better with softer instrumentation? Does Tamar stand out as a solo artist? Don’t deny: We know you love it!
