String Trio Does An Invigorating Classical Cover Of Avicii's "Wake Me Up"

Mar 10, 2015
Since 2010, the music trio, Simply Three, has been making the genre of classical crossover look easy. Simply Three is simply that, just three guys who play violin, cello and bass. They are Glen McDaniel on violin, Zack Clark on cello and Nicholas Villalobos on bass. Known for their covers of pop music as much (if not more) as their original songs, the trio have graced the stages of some of the United States' most heralded concert halls as well as shared the recording studio with some of pop's greats.

Their cover of 2013's "Wake Me Up" by Swedish DJ and music producer Avicii is simply divine. The trio manages to incorporate their technical mastery into melodies already well known by the general public. This often results in a cover that is nearly as compelling as the initial release. Many of the artists covered by Simply Three have taken to social media to express how much they love the work.
