    Check out Jay Stolar's cover of Bruno Mars' smash hit "Treasure."

    Like what you heard? Stolar's debut More Than We Think lands on October 8.

    "When I was really young, all I listened to was Michael Jackson, Prince, Earth, Wind & Fire, Stevie Wonder, and other soul/funk/pop artists," Stolar, who is from New Jersey but now resides in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, told us about his inspiration for and why he took a stab at this cover. "When I heard this song, I was excited to hear those influences so clearly in Bruno Mars' arrangement, and I couldn't resist getting a chance to play and sing all of those different parts. Pieces of these artists sounds have crept their way into my music but it was nice to just go for it 100% with this cover."

    With a vocal style falling somewhere between Bruno Mars, Daryl Hall and Smokey Robinson, Stolar is making his presence felt.

    His recent Kickstarter campaign raised $25,000, surpassing 170% of his initial goal, in just a few days.
