'Shenandoah' Cover From Bass Singer Geoff Castellucci

Take a step back in time as bass singer Geoff Castellucci performs a nostalgic rendition of ‘Shenandoah.’ No one is quite sure when this folk song originated, but it dates all the way back to the early 19th century. Decades later, ‘Shenandoah’ has become a popular tune covered by artists all across the globe. 

‘Oh, Shenandoah, I long to hear you
Look away, you rollin' river
Oh, Shenandoah, I long to hear you
Look away, we're bound away across the wide Missouri’

You may recognize Geoff Castellucci as a member of the a cappella group VoicePlay. Over the years, these 5 men have given us incredible covers of popular songs such as ‘True Colors’ and ‘Don’t Stop Believin.’ Their viral music is always a welcome display of talent and skill. 

Today, Geoff is stepping out on his own and using his unique vocals to put his own spin on ‘Shenandoah.’ There’s no doubt that when you hear his distinct bass tone, you will be transported back in time to a place of sweeping mountains and rolling waters. 

“I'm bound away
'Cross the wide Missouri
'Tis seven long years since last I've seen you
And hear your roaming river”

On YouTube, Geoff wrote about his excitement to record this iconic song. “Getting to re-imagine a dusty old tune like this one is one of my favorite things to do, and I hope you enjoyed this "rangey" (is that a word?) version of ‘Shenandoah’”

I always love hearing these classic tunes. What about you?
