Wishing Well - Terence Trent D'Arby Cover

Categories: Music

By Jolan / YouTube

This song just started going through my head this morning.  I knew the Terence Trent D'Arby song, but had never paid much attention to it.  As I'm listening to it in my head, I hear this attitude.  I guess it was D'Arby's since he's the one who made it a hit.  So I set out to see what covers did it justice.

I found this kid - Jolan.  He had his own attitude.  That along with a solid voice, creative arrangement, good production, competent musicians, a simple yet well-produced black and white video, and a kinda cool hair style made this my cover of the week.  (I would've had him wear something other than a plain white T, but hey...)

After I had made my choice, I discovered that Jolan is, according to his Wikipedia article, "best known for placing second in the fifth series of The Voice UK."  You can hear his live version of this same song on his 2016 audition.

(At 0:14 into the song, Jolan looks to the female singer on his right and smiles as he sings "to my sweet lover and me."  A brief break from his game face.)
