Small Town Titans Celebrates Soundgarden Anniversary With ‘Spoonman’ Cover

Independent hard rock act Small Town Titans has another treat for audiences.

The band recently unveiled the video for its cover of Soundgarden’s classic hit ‘Spoonman.’  The video’s premiere, which ran online at tattoo.com, was meant to celebrate the 24th anniversary of the release of Superunknown, the album from which the song came.  The album was originally released March 8, 1994.

Front man Phil Freeman, whose vocal delivery in this song sounds eerily like that of Soundgarden’s late front man Chris Cornell, said in a recent interview that Cornell — and Soundgarden in whole — has been integral in STT’s own career, making this cover even more special for him and his bandmates.

“Chris Cornell has been a musical hero of mine since I was in high school, and has been a major influence in the style of our band,” Freeman said.  “Soundgarden’s repertoire is vast and difficult to pull off.  The reason we decided to cover this classic of theirs is not only to challenge our musicianship and ability, but also to pay tribute to one of the greatest voices and lyricists of Rock ‘n Roll from one of the greatest bands of all time.  Our hope is that our interpretation does the song and its original performers the justice and recognition it deserves.”
