Track of the week... Jonny Stemp - Stay

It's not like every week we pick an acoustic track as the track of the week, and it's certainly not every week we choose a cover, but this week we decided to make an exception. Jonny stepped it up again once more with his cover of Rihanna's "Stay". The simplistic approach to the cover is what we're loving the most, rather it being a complete cover, electric drums and all he has just stuck to a simple ivory laden (I'm assuming) piano and finger clicks. With the backing vocals coming from himself this is literally a cover he can call his own.

The singer-songwriter from Harlow is certainly following in the footsteps of fellow local George Ezra who suddenly exploded onto the scene late last year, and with covers such as this one we can see it happening to Jonny when he's back down form university. One thing is for sure, he's certainly got bags full of talent, and we've seen this with his previous bands such as Montego Bay and Brother's Boat. This front-man's solo efforts are proving to be a big deal, and we're just waiting for someone to come along and snap him up.

If you imagine Tom Odell's vocals, the hair of a rock-star, and the charm of George Ezra then this is Jonny, he doesn't play a lot of shows due to uni commitments, but if you see him on a bill near you, go down!
