With a somber look on her face, the young girl matches the popular song word for word without skipping a beat. Just when you thought Jayden Rylee was performing alone, the screen splits and another musician is in the video.

Adding her in is the perfect combination, her powerful drumming goes right along with the Jaydens voice! They’re just young kids, but they sound and play better than most adults.

They give Simon and Garfunkel a run for their money as they do the epic cover

How do these kids sound so good?! They’re far beyond their years, it’s surprising they even know a Simon and Garfunkel song, let alone want to cover it! Also, the videographer who shot the video really knows his way around the camera!

Jayden and Sina are the faces of the video, but there’s a whole live band playing the classic song

You’re probably wondering how this cover sounds so good? That’s because it’s not only Jayden and Sina playing the music, there are guitars and an orchestral arrangement too!

On the guitars is Mike Wilbury, while Rick Benbow played the keys and put together the orchestral arrangement. One thing is for certain, they all did an incredible job! Simon and Garfunkel would be proud! To see this touching cover of their song “The Sound of Silence,” watch the video below!
