Bluegrass version of Home by American idol winner Phillip Phillips 4

In a burst of inspiration we called our friends together to quickly capture our late night bluegrass version of this tune called “HOME” by American Idol 2012 (season 11) winner Phillip Phillips.

We used a banjo, melodica, acoustic, and 4 part harmony with an iPad, iPhone, and iMac.

Jesse Padgett – Banjo
Ingrid Boesten – lead vocals
Kim McMechan – melodica / vocals
Nico Boesten – acoustic guitar / vocals
Maya – peace puppy

 

 

I couldn’t get into Phillip Phillips because it annoyed me that he seemed like such a Dave Matthews knock-off but this tune is actually pretty killer. Here’s the original version for your viewing pleasure.

 

Home Lyrics

- Phillip Phillips (American Idol 2012 winner)

Hold on, to me as we go
As we roll down this unfamiliar road
And although this wave is stringing us along
Just know you’re not alone
Cause I’m going to make this place your home

Settle down, it’ll all be clear
Don’t pay no mind to the demons
They fill you with fear
The trouble it might drag you down
If you get lost, you can always be found

Just know you’re not alone
Cause I’m going to make this place your home

Settle down, it’ll all be clear
Don’t pay no mind to the demons
They fill you with fear
The trouble it might drag you down
If you get lost, you can always be found

Just know you’re not alone
Cause I’m going to make this place your home
