In Your Eyes – Peter Gabriel Cover

by Jon Pinney on July 12, 2012

I just posted a new cover that I recorded last night.  I’d love to know what you think.  And if you could, please share :)

Here’s the link: http://youtu.be/aGLqv2qk0eg

Also, check out this picture to see how I lit the room when I recorded. It was actually pretty fun to figure out the lighting piece.

This is how I set up the lighting and video recording

Florence + the Machine

by Jon Pinney on September 22, 2010

My new favorite artist:  Florence + the Machine.  I’m not actually sure if it’s a band or just a singer, but I do know that I love the album and style.

The first time I heard Florence + the Machine was from the Eclipse soundtrack.  She has a song called “Heavy In Your Arms” that was featured in that movie.  It’s pretty awesome–very emotional, powerful, and raw (plus great singing and pretty unique).  So I figured I’d try out the album Lungs, aptly named because the lead singer Florence Welch has a nice pair that’s very apparent in her singing.  As singing goes, she is amazing.

My favorite songs on the album are: #4 Howl; #2 Rabbit Heart (Raise It Up); and #7 Drumming Song.  Below are links to the videos for #2 and #7.  Also, if you get a chance, listen to #4 Howl in your car with the music blasting, windows rolled down, while driving really fast.  It’s a great feeling :)

My Favorite American Idol Performance Of All Time

by Jon Pinney on September 18, 2009

One of the guys I work with just walked into the office singing “Summertime” to himself–he didn’t know I was there.  I said something to him, and that made me think of this performance, so I showed it to him.  This is by far my favorite American Idol performance of all time.  There are others that have been awesome, but this one takes it for me.

Fantasia Barrino singing “Summertime.”

If you have a favorite American Idol performance, I wanna know what it is.  Leave a comment below.

If you haven’t seen this yet… you have to check it out. I would have embedded the video, but I couldn’t find a copy that allowed embedding.

Utterly breathtaking…
