Say hello to my new favourite Hobbie Stuart. I recently stumbled upon his rather magical cover of Rihanna’s Diamonds and since then haven’t I been able to stop listening to the incredible talent from Brighton.
With influences ranging from Frank Ocean, Oasis, Adele, Ellie Goulding, John Mayer, The Weeknd, Bon Iver, Coldplay, The Script, Death Cab For Cutie, The Kooks, MGMT, Pink Floyd and Elton John, he blends a soulful style with a lovely twist on of his covers. All of which are something speculator. As for his own efforts, they are equally noteworthy. His songs ‘How We Lived’ and ‘When You Wake’ are firm favourites.
Having recently signed to Sony Music Hobbie Stuart looks to make his mark on the music scene. Keep an eye out for him!
