When listening to Bruno Major take on a song as packed with raw feeling and vocal flexibility as Frank Ocean's "Bad Religion," it's hard to believe that this talented musician never started out as a singer -- in fact, he actually started his journey on stage as a session guitar player, where he worked with such amazing vocalists as Erykah Badu and Lalah Hathaway.

Luckily for all of us, however, the London-based Major did eventually decide to move into singing on his own compositions, eventually getting picked up by U.S. label Virgin Records where he has just released his EP Live. Yahoo Music is excited to introduce him with this premiere of his Ocean cover, a startlingly emotional interpretation of the song.
