Hands up if jamming to your favorite local artists and bands is your favorite way of spending your time at home! Thanks to our favorite musicians, staying inside our houses is a lot more entertaining.

While we’re completely content with bursting into our favorite Clara Benin song inside our bedrooms where no one else can hear us, it’s nice to see our fellow fans share their talent and love for homegrown artists by posting their covers online. What’s nicer is that many of our favorite local musicians actually see these covers, so we asked a couple of them to share their favorite fan covers. Isn’t it so heartwarming to see the artists you support show some love back?

“We love and appreciate all the fan covers we receive but there is a recent fan cover that really tops our list ate the moment. Last April 21, The Nostalgics (our street team and OCS fans community) surprised us with a cover of our Harana Coma track, ‘Sabay.’”

Bbangks – “Aphrodite” 

“Her voice and singing style are perfect for the song! Hands down our favorite cover of Aphrodite so far.”

@keanujigr – “Cold Feet”

“He covers all our songs with so much love. You sense it in the way he performs.”

Aljuhn Villarin – “Germany & Rome” 

“He recorded all the instruments/vocal parts by himself! It reminds us of Benny when he was just starting out, recording all the instruments on his own.”

Leanne & Naara

@leanneandnaara

“Our favorite right now is Jaw + Lai’s cover of ‘Make Me Sing!’ These two really made the song their own and it was a joy to watch. It’s such a calming rendition. And she’s wearing a leanne and naara shirt!”

Clara Benin

@clarabeninmusic 

“I get tagged in videos of my fans covering my songs almost everyday, and I love them all! But I remember this one particular cover that really stood out and it's a guy who made a punk rock/screamo version of my song, Parallel Universe! I enjoyed it because he made it his own and it was very unique.”
