Emerging singer/songwriter BRUNO MAJOR has premiered an intimate live video of his Frank Ocean cover of “Bad Religion” today on Yahoo Music, along with officially releasing Live EP via Virgin Records. The record features three brand new original tracks in addition to the cover, and marks his debut release with Virgin.
The London native has drawn comparisons to artists like John Mayer, Coldplay, and Iron & Wine, as his extraordinary guitar playing is constantly battling with his vocals for primacy – a detail that reminds you how reduced the role of the guitar is in much of contemporary pop. The long years before the songs and the singing came pouring out were “pretty difficult at times,” says Bruno. “I’d be playing a bar gig for 50 quid, and I’d see all my friends becoming doctors or something like that. But I can’t do anything else, and I wouldn’t be happy if I could,” he adds. Major is currently in London with producer Ethan Johns (Paul McCartney, Ryan Adams, Kings of Leon) working on his full length album.
