Wiz Khalifa - See You Again ft Charlie Puth (Furious 7 Soundtrack, Official Acoustic Cover Video)

Categories: News

New video is up! I couldn't resist a song from the new Furious 7 movie, in tribute to Paul Walker.

I had a lot of fun with this one. It's a lip-syncer with lights, lots of editing and color correction, and I even tried a new trick to make myself seem slightly slow-mo.

Cigarette Daydreams

Categories: News

Hello friends!

I've been behind updating you on what I've been doing over at youtube.. so please enjoy my latest cover song: Cigarette Daydreams, by Cage the Elephant!


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DPVFV7hfgU0&list=PL9DCDB1089494F2CC&index=1

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.

Hello everyone!

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. [...]

Yo dudes!

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. [...]
