Singer of Pharaoh’s Dream, David Nathan, wanted to share his love for the song “Sunny” by creating a cover that encapsulates the beauty of the original. Inspired by hit classics, David Nathan writes and records his own versions of songs that inspired him to be the musician he is today. There are only so many people who can honor great music with their own interpretations, and David was successful in creating something just as beautiful as the original. David and his producer Tyler McCrary sat together virtually and created an interpolation of Bobby’s hit single.
Tyler adds a tinge of reggae to the single in order to make it stand out in a way it hadn’t been tried before. Whereas Bobby’s single was very fast paced and incredibly jazzy, David takes his own personal approach to honor his favorite song. Slowing the song and adding extra minor chords with the piano makes the song feel much more personal and adds a level of emotion that didn’t exist in the original. David’s voice has a timeless quality that, paired with his instrumental choices, send listeners back to 40s and 50s jazz clubs. His tinge of blues in his voice stems from his greatest inspirations. Tyler and David also manipulated the vocal production and cadence of their version, separating themselves from the incredibly well known vocal variations used in the original.
David has impeccable capabilities as he was able to turn a jazzy pop hit single into something soulful and blue. Pharaoh’s Dream has kept “Sunny” shining bright and brought back some good memories by creating and releasing this amazing remake. David encapsulated the brand of Pharaoh’s Dream while being able to achieve his dream of covering one of his personal favorite songs. David’s influences allow him to appeal not only to some younger demographics who listen to this music, but to older generations who grew up listening to these very same artists. This remake sure was a “Sunny” interpretation of a beautiful hit song.
