Adorable Irish lad Damien Leith talks about his interesting new album – half originals, half covers of Traveling Wilburys’ tunes.

A mix of originals and covers is nothing new, but Damien Leith’s Now & Then goes one further and intersperses his new songs evenly with songs by the Traveling Wilburys together and songs by the individual members Roy Orbison, Bob Dylan, Jeff Lynne, George Harrison and Tom Petty.

We talk to the animated lad about matching his songs with classics, his now enormous setlist, writing happier tunes, re-recording his ‘Beautiful’ song for Estee Lauder (to the delight of Snooki), and more.
