Steven Universe – opening

steven-universeA lot of people told me I should watch Steven Universe, so I recently started  doing so. Since episode one, I was so much into this song. Of course I love ukulele, but the song is also catchy, the harmonies are great and the melody is nice. So I really had to cover it.

I did so one night after work, I could have spent more time on it but I really wanted to post it quickly. The little amount of time spent on it makes the cover a bit sketchy (as always), but for once I am quite happy with my high-pitched singing, which I usually find horrible. The instruments I used include the ukulele of course, glockenspiel, toy piano (at last I got to use it after buying it one year ago at least), hand claps, and taps on my belly (my tribute to steven) to recreate the bass drum.

More covers from cartoons, TV shows and movies here!

Toehider & krapo – Spartakus and the Sun Beneath the Sea

Mike and krapoOn Saturday, September 26th, I have had the privilege, the honour and the pleasure of opening for Brisbane-based band Toehider‘s Mike Mills.

Mike is the artist I admire and respect the most, and I can only urge you to listen to his music and watch his videos. Everyone at the show was amazed, the metal fan as much as the pop fan. Mike’s impressive voice and virtuoso guitar playing convinced everyone of his talent, especially at the end of the show, when all the audience was singing along to this amazing Bohemian Rhapsody cover.

As if watching and listening to him play was not enough to make my day, I had the pleasure to play and sing with him the opening song of Spartakus and the Sun Beneath The Sea.
