I’m not much of a fan of Rihanna. Her music has somehow become the most omnipresent sound in the world, and I just don’t get it. However, I do like covers of her songs. It’s a strange thing, but Manic Street Preachers take on “Umbrella” is one of my favorite things ever. So when I heard the St. Lenox cover of “Stay,” released on an EP filled with Andrew Choi playing other people’s music ahead of a new full-length of originals, I decided to share it with you.
He sounds a bit like Gavin DeGraw on this track, other times he sounds a bit like a young Phil Collins. In other words, he has a good voice for pop music if you like that sort of thing. He’s a classically trained violinist, still looking to find his wheelhouse. He’s dabbled in folktronica, r&b, and jazz-and he seems to do them all pretty well.
We’ll find out more when Ten Songs About Memory And Hope is out later this year. For now you can enjoy some more covers on Soundcloud, or check out a preview of some original material on Bandcamp.
