  • Los Angeles-Long Beach, CA (1888PressRelease) August 26, 2016 - Pop singer-songwriter Jonathan Cavier is excited to announce the release of his version of Duran Duran's classic "Save a Prayer". This single is now available as the first release from the brand new "Cavier Covers" series, in which Jonathan covers songs that are important to his musical life. "Save a Prayer" is available now at iTunes and all major digital outlets.

    Jonathan Cavier has been a fan of Duran Duran since 1982, and cites meeting the group on the California leg of their Rio tour as a "life-changing moment" which inspired him to pick up the keyboard. Because Duran Duran is one of Cavier's musical heroes, he thought it only fitting to release "Save a Prayer" as the first "Cavier Cover" - remembering Duran Duran releasing a cover of "Fame" as a tribute to their own musical hero, David Bowie.

    The release of "Save a Prayer" comes just months after Jonathan's debut solo album Premier. The album has been well-received by critics, garnering rave reviews across the web. Here's what some of them had to say: Cavier's hook filled pop and folk catches your ear and his easy going delivery makes it all the more appealing for the story he is telling. - Rate the Tracks
