Stevie Face looks hitbound … again
Lover’s rock singer Stevie Face, who is still riding high with his hit song from last year, “Tell It Like It Is”, has another single which pundits are saying looks hitbound.
A cover of the song made popular locally by veteran singer, Boris Gardiner, “I Wanna Wake Up With You” is also produced by Bootcamp Record’s Paul ‘Computer Paul’ Henton.
“Computer Paul and I have the right synergy musically,” Stevie says of his manager/producer. “He gave the right touch to “Tell It Like It Is” and we were both pleased with the result. Locally and internationally, it has done wonders for my career,” he declared of the song which went number one locally and is still on various charts across the world.
He stated that certain songs have special meaning to him and this Boris Gardiner single is one such. On this cover, Stevie captures the essence of the original and one can almost hear Boris on this recording, which is definitely a tribute. It will have appeal to Boris Gardiner fans and will teach youngsters hearing it for the first time about Boris.
Stevie Face recently returned from gigs in London, which he says were “very good”. He was also one of the performers on the recent Hype TV Music and Video Awards, where he performed the single, “Tell It Like It Is”, much to the delight of his fans.
