Take a camera, a black cab and a singer – then film. The Black Cab Sessions have been doing this quite successfully getting acts suck as Brian Wilson, Weezer and Ryan Adams to name just three out of a massive list of acts. All were filmed within one take only.
I’ve chosen to show you St Vincents’ cover of The Beatle’s ‘I Dig A Pony’ but you can watch them all (in higher quality!) on their site here – www.blackcabsessions.com
