The Natvral is the newest project from Kip Berman, formerly of The Pains of Being Pure at Heart. It allows him to show off his more folk and roots side, and you don't get more folk and roots than covering The Byrds. For The Natvral's newest single, Berman recruited Jen Goma for a cover of "The Ballad of Easy Rider," the theme song for Easy Rider. It's an iconic song, and probably much more folk pop than you remember it being. Goma takes on lead vocals for the song, and it's definitely a more modern folk take on the original. It's a little more lush, but not by much. The original is a fairly pop take on folk, by 2021 standards. This is a great cover that the majority of our readers are going to really enjoy.
You can listen to The Natvral and Jen Goma's version of "The Ballad of Easy Rider" below. The song is available for the "name your price" option over at The Natvral's Bandcamp. For more on The Natvral, check out the artist's website. For Jen Goma, you can find her on Twitter.
