This House We Built releases their modern twist on the classic, “You’re The Voice,” featuring Danny Vaughn (Tyketto)
Returning to 6DB Studios in York in February 2023, the band collaborated with producer Dave Boothroyd to deliver a powerful version of the timeless track.
Scott Wardell, the band’s lead vocalist and guitarist, shares his enthusiasm for the project: “I always loved this track growing up, and performing it live at acoustic shows was a hit. With Dave Boothroyd’s input, we put our own mark on the song, and adding Danny Vaughn’s vocals took it to the next level.”
The decision to release the track coincided with the support slot for the Tyketto Winter Tour 2013. Wardell notes, “We thought it was the perfect time to share it with the masses, and it’s coming out on November 28th, just before my 50th birthday – a fantastic gift to sing alongside my vocal hero Danny Vaughn.”
Danny Vaughn adds: “First, I was lucky enough to stumble across the band This House We Built, whom I consider to be the U.K.’s best new rock band to come along in a very long time. Through sheer luck and perhaps a little pushing on Scott’s part, we were introduced at one of my acoustic shows. I listened to their debut album, self-penned, self-funded and recorded off of their own backs, with absolute astonishment at the quality of the songwriting and the sound production.
Secondly, I had the pleasure of having the band open for me last year on my acoustic tour and I got to see how hard they work, and how much care and effort they put into their craft.
And then lastly, they ask me to join them singing on a remake of one of the most anthemic rock songs ever written!! What’s not to love? And I do love this song. I love how they have respectfully recrafted the sound to suit their more modern edge while at the same time, staying true to the power and message of the original. And it couldn’t be more timely, could it? Right now, we are living in a world where we are being told to just keep our heads down because there’s nothing we can do about it, where schoolyard bullies run our governments and big money is trying to control all that is good in the world.
It’s the perfect time to revisit the message of this song.
You’re the voice, and you are not alone by any means. “We’ve got the power to be powerful”.
And, yeah, you’re gonna love hearing this new version. It kicks ass.”
This House We Built is set to open for Tyketto on their Winter Tour, with dates including Nightrain in Bradford, Queens Hall in Nuneaton, Planet Rockstock in Trecco Bay, Yardbirds in Grimsby, The Waterloo in Blackpool, and finishing off for their final gig of the year and Christmas party at Trillians Rock Bar in Newcastle on December 21st to celebrate what has been an incredible rock n’ roll rollercoaster for the band.
