A perfect rendition!
It’s no secret that Rush are the most technical bands in rock n’ roll history. Every note is precise and every musician in the band (Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson and Neil Peart) are masters of their craft. Due to this, covering Rush is extremely difficult. But for these young kids, they made the task look pretty damn easy! 10-year old Sara, along with a band called Motion Device, took on the Rush classic “Tom Sawyer” and slayed a fantastic cover! Sara smashes Geddy’s lead vocals, and the rest of the band does an amazing job of channeling Peart and Lifeson respectively!
Fun Fact: During the first instrumental section of this song, the time signature changes to 7/8. The unusual choice in time signature is consistent with other songs by Rush, such as “Limelight,” “The Trees,” “Distant Early Warning,” and “Freewill,” among others.
It’s so satisfying to hear young talent like this, especially young talent that appreciates the classics. We’re pretty positive that if the “holy triumvirate” actually heard these kids, they’d be smiling! In the description of the video, these kids say they want to open for Rush one day! We’d for sure be in full support of that happening!
