AP Interview: Cover Drive gets boost from Rihanna
She picked newcomers Cover Drive to back her at an Aug. 5 show for 20,000 in her homeland, which ensured strong notice for the newcomers. The group consists of bass player Jamar Harding, rapper/drummer T. Ray Armstrong, lead singer Amanda Reifer and guitarist Barry Hill.
The quartet told The Associated Press that backing up Rihanna was the best 20 minutes of their lives and they would love to have an amazing career like hers. They are now based in London and are scheduled to perform Aug. 29 during the Notting Hill Carnival.
Cover Drive built up its fan base by putting videos on YouTube called the Fedora Sessions. Their cover of Train’s “Hey, Soul Sister” got so much interest it lead to a record deal. Now they’re releasing their debut single, “Lick You Down” in Britain on Aug. 28.
Band members are quick to note the song’s title isn’t erotic but refers to a local Creole saying meaning “knock you down.” They call their music “Carib-pop” _ what you get when you take Caribbean and pop music and put it in a blender.
“You have a nice, amazing drink of Caribbean music,” said Reifer. “It means it’s feel-good, it’s fun, it’s fresh, it’s sun shining, it’s all the things we like to use to describe our music.”
