Before he was a megastar, The Weeknd was a soulful performer and songwriter, if deeply troubled at times. Here’s my cover of a very emotional song by him, performed on my trusty Boss RC-505 Loop Station.

First of all, I don’t know if we, as a species, will ever truly figure out how to spell “a cappella” in a way that we can all agree upon. I’ve chosen the proper Italian, and will probably take a hit to my search results because of it. Which is fine; it’s about attracting the right search queriers, not the most. Also “queriers” shouldn’t have a red line under it, Google. For shame.
There are a lot of exciting things going on. I’ve been enjoying running my YouTube channel, and will eventually do a post about what I’ve learned. This site is also in dire need of a redesign due to that and also just because I’m tired of this one. It should help me get excited about posting more again.
Speaking of segues, here’s an original song I wrote and recorded as an a cappella multitrack music video. The song’s called Mexico. More soon!
This summer I’ve done a couple of sort-of-almost-professional beatboxing gigs, and I loved it so much I’ve been inspired to do a few videos on my YouTube channel. I hope to do these on a regular basis from now on. Here’s this week’s video, a cover of Michael Jackson’s Billie Jean using only a microphone and a Boss DD-20 Giga Delay. It’s gotten over a hundred views already, which is awesome. If the interest keeps up, I hope to create a real channel, with subscribers and consistency and everything. Enjoy!
