First ... yikes... it seems I may have dropped the ball delivering my latest youtube covers to you, so let's start things off with a couple of my new cover songs: Vance Joy's "Riptide", and "I Really Like You", by Carly Rae Jepsen:
Show in Hermosa Beach
Yay! And now for a big announcement! I'm playing a *live* show this Thursday at Saint Rocke in Hermosa Beach!
I'll be doing an acoustic set as the featured opener for artists Joseph Arthur and Lindsey Harper. Tickets are 18, venue is 21 and over, and I start my set at 8pm sharp. Try to get there early (doors open at 6pm) and be ready for a night of fun. [...]
I've been having lots of fun doing various covers the last few months. I've done Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran, John Legend, and even a poor Maroon 5 (lol). I plan on regularly releasing content, but I may continue to be slow to post them on this blog, so I'd appreciate it if you'd head on over and subscribe to my youtube channel. That way I can be lazy about updating my blog, and you can still get the music... it's a win-win.
I've got the final performance clip from my recent appearance on The Kay Show, woo woo!
Here's me doing my original song, I Want You With Me:
In the heat of the moment, I accidentally put the capo on the wrong fret (haha) and ended up playing the song 2 halfsteps lower than I should have. Lucky for me I'm pretty used to re-keying songs on a regular basis, or it could have been a disaster lolol. Also, I cut the song short because I was under the impression we were out of time. [...]
Last weekend I got to do a live on-air radio interview and perform some unplugged versions of my original music, as well as hang out and talk for about an hour. It was another great experience, and this time around - I got videos and photos, woo woo
So my latest song "I Want You With Me" has been out about a month and a half and I have what will probably be the final update regarding what's been happening with it and soundcloud.
If you haven't seen my previous updates, I released it on (i believe) June 14th, 2014 to this website, soundcloud, and some others. For awhile we were getting quite a few plays and I was pretty happy. A lot of you listened and gave me feedback, a lot of you helped share the track with your friends, and we generally had a good time. [...]
In fact, what's even better is this: Because it's on the charts right now, its getting a huge increase in daily plays; Over a thousand extra a day than it was getting before! If I leave the computer and come back even a few minutes later, the play count jumps up a lot. [...]
