A Vintage ’50s Remake of “Sledgehammer,” featuring Noah Guthrie


We have an exciting PMJ debut this week – meet Noah Guthrie, an incredible young singer / songwriter that has already amassed a large follower, thanks to his musical gifts.  Check out what we did with Peter Gabriel’s 1986 hit, “Sledgehammer” – Watch:

Fans of the hit show, “GLEE” will recognize Noah from his role in the show’s sixth season.  In addition, he’s built a subscriber base of nearly 500,000 on his popular YouTube channel – be sure to check out his other covers.  Working with Noah on his PMJ debut was a great experience.  My vision for “Sledgehammer” was to take it back to the era when the rhythms of railroads influenced popular music, and Noah’s blues and Gospel-tinged voice was a perfect stylistic fit.  Tara Louise and Adanna Duru also lent their fantastic voices (and in Adanna’s case, acting ability:)) to the arrangement.

Happy #PMJday!

    Hey, the song is great, but this isn’t the first time, so I’ll have to ask. What’s with Adanna’s wardrobe? The white shoes are weird enough, but it looks like sent a color blind personal stylist to a thrift store with a budget of 5 bucks.

      I LOVE that long skirt! Gorgeous

        That skirt is beautiful, I agree. But for video small geometric prints have a dizzying effect. I was commenting on her look as an “outfit” to be filmed in, not as something to be worn in real life.

        I would love to see her in an outfit that showcased her talent for music and acting, by it’s discretion and appropriateness. Say a long solid colored dress with dark shoes. Or a cream dress with light shoes, that would be gorgeous with her skin tone. None of those are expensive. I used to shop thrift stores for outfits for photography, so I know they can be found cheaply and with good quality there if you are willing to take the time.
