Jarvis Church – The Songs of Sam Cooke (EMI Music Canada)

The latest release from Toronto’s Jarvis Church sees the talented vocalist tackle the catalogue of Sam Cooke. Church’s voice and backing band are well suited to the songs, especially on Cooke’s songs like Cupid and A Change Is Gonna Come. Two Church original tracks (She Keeps Me Up All Night and Do It Better) slip seamlessly into the mix of the record, showing that the influence of Cooke’s music runs deeply in Church’s veins.
