We weren’t able to find much info on Elle Watson except that she’s from London….we randomly stumbled across this cover of hers and we are glad we did! Her voice is absolutely beautiful. In the video below she covers All Along the Watchtower, a song written and recorded by Bob Dylan which appeared on his 1967 album John Wesley Harding. All Along the Watchtower was made most famous when Jimmy Hendrix covered it for his Electric Ladyland album, it became a Top 20 single and ranked 47th in Rolling Stone magazine’s “500 Greatest Songs of all Time”. Hope to hear more from Elle soon!
