Flashlight - Jessie J (Pitch Perfect 2 Soundtrack, Cover Song)

Categories: News

Aloha you dudes!

My latest cover is out! For this one, I picked a song called "Flashlight" from the new movie "Pitch Perfect 2". It's pretty cute and gooey and stuff, and I loved the way that F-chord sounds on my guitar.

Bad Blood (Taylor Swift Piano Cover)

Categories: News

Hey d00ds! I'm back with my second-ever piano cover, woot woot!

I choose the new Taylor Swift release "Bad Blood". My version is way way ... slower and sadder haha. I'm going to pretend this was for artistic reasons, rather than making it easier for me to play...

New Cover Video: Major Lazer - Lean On

Categories: News

New cover video is up! This time I had a go at a song called "Lean On", by "Major Lazer". The original video was so fun and also a bit silly, that I had to jump in:

PS, "MØ" is pretty cute... [...]

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.

Love is an Opportunity

Categories: Journal

Hey peeps,

So ... I'm feeling a little warm and fuzzy today. There's an artist I check out from time to time, named Kina Grannis, and a new friend just showed me a song that Kina had apparently recorded with her husband. It's a very sweet song, and it got me thinking about love.

This might sound weird or negative to some of you, but I feel like it's incredibly positive.

I often think about love; How hard it is to find; How easily it fades. A lot has to come together in just the right way, for it to happen. Take most couples. Imagine if things were different, even just a little bit. [...]

The Dress is White & Gold, you insane mutants

Categories: Mouth Diarrhea

Well hello there you dudes! It's been too long since I've posted a rant-blog, so here you go.

The god damn white and gold dress is white and god damn gold, not god damn blue and black, you god damn blue/black mutants.

And now for my theory....


First off, if you haven't heard, the internet is going insane over a photograph of a dress, that about half the population seems to think is "white with gold stripes", while the other half think its "blue with black stripes". It's basically come down to a question of how we perceive colors, when factors such as digital color temperature / flash / lighting, monitor calibration, viewing environment ambience, as well as the physical color receptors in our eyes, come into play. Here's the dress: [...]

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!

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.
