Neon Hitch is just absolutely amaze balls in every single way. I love the way she shifts songs and makes it fit for her voice and style. Rock on love. Rock on

@sdtigerlily

How she manages to sound better than the original on every single cover she's done is amazing!

@kiere55

This is so legit, it's ridiculous. lol I love how it sounds on that piano. And then how the drums come in, then the bells, then the beautiful flute. Then halfway it switches to that electric sound and goes techno on you. I love it..

@jacobmatton7588
