A Real Pianist

Meet Stew, probably one of the most gifted piano players we have ever come across which is undeniably proved in his The Who cover of “Baba O’Riley that took our breath away. Starting out strong with one of the most famous intros in rock, Stew’s fingers are almost undetectable like the speed of light itself.

“I get my back into my living. I don’t need to fight, to prove I’m right, I don’t need to be forgiven…”

Inspired by two influential and gifted men in his life, Pete felt compelled to share the song title with the two, his spiritual guru Meher Baba and instrumentalist Terry Riley. Released on the The Who’s most successful album, “Baba O’ Riley” never was released as a single so it was never able to chart. 

Interesting Fact: Pete Townshend spent a few weeks in his home studio putting together the part that sounds like a synthesizer on a Lowry organ. His goal: to create “a replication of the electronic music of the future.”

The Who is definitely one tough band to cover, but Stew really has taken our breath away with his piano skills and honestly his voice isn’t bad either! Check this crazy talented guy out and if you have a minute check out the feedback he has received in the comment section.
