(10/27/13) Monty's Catch of the Day - Jeff Sontag
Posted 10/27/2013 8:25:00 AM

I happened to stumble upon this artist out of LA named Jeff Sontag, and what caught my attention was his absolutely brilliant cover of AlunaGeorge's "You Know You Like It", which is today's catch. I'm already a huge fan of the original by AlunaGeorge, but I have to say I think Jeff Sontag's version is on another level. His smooth soulful voice sounds absolutely beautiful in front of the ethereal chords of his keyboard. It's not too often when I think a cover is better than the original, but in this case I have to. Now I don't know much about Sontag, but this is what he has as far as a bio goes:

"I was born in Chicago, came out to LA for school, and have been singing since the day NSYNC released their first album.  I'm in love with Jennifer Lawrence (if you're reading this, marry me) and l like to play off like I'm above Taylor Swift, but secretly steal all her melodies.  John Mayer and Dave Matthews Band pretty much occupied all my thoughts and energy in high school, and I know every Emin...em rap by heart. I love singing more than anything and in college I was a member of the USC SoCal VoCals."

I love this cover, and I recommend that you get the track right away. All you have to do is "like" his Facebook page in order to get "You Know You Like It" as a free download. Pretty Easy. You can also listen to a clip of the song in the audio player above. Good things!
