Damien Rice wears his heart on his sleeve. His new album, My Favourite Faded Fantasy, is rife with vulnerability and reflections on universal themes — never more effectively than in "It Takes A Lot To Know A Man."

Nashville singer-songwriter Mikky Ekko was catapulted to fame when pop superstar Rihanna recorded his song "Stay" and then performed it with him at the Grammys.

During Ekko's recent visit to a Sonos Studio pop-up set in New York City, KCRW captured this live version of "Stay."
