I got to be a guest on This Might Be A Podcast!

I got to be a guest on one of my favorite podcasts to talk with host Greg Simpson about our favorite band They Might Be Giants. We discuss the awesomely under-rated song Music Jail Part 1 & 2. You can…

Scarborough Fair (Pop-Punk Version)

A group of people I met on reddit have been doing cover songs to get us through the pandemic. Here is our latest:

The arrangement of this took some time. Those time and feel changes were tricky. Lots of Bad…

Music Jail - TMBG Cover

Hey all! This is one of the songs I was asked to record for the THEY pay tribute album, a tribute to They Might Be Giants. The organizers actually chose my recording to open the album because they liked it…

Fun Assassin - TMBG Cover

Here is a lyric video I made for a cover song I recorded. This is another song by one of my favorite bands They Might Be Giants. I was asked to record this cover for a Podcast. Love the lyrics…

Creep - Radiohead cover

I met some random strangers online and we decided to do this cover of Radiohead's Creep. OH THE ANGST. Great song - but watch out for F-bombs :)

Protest Songs

A live cover of the classic Bob Dylan and Buffalo Springfield song. Still appropriate given the times we live in. I’ve been pushing myself to post things that aren’t perfect. This is a live performance sweetened with a little reverb…

Come Together - Beatles Cover by Philhelmon

I have a confession to make... I actually started this recording in 2016! That’s when the footage is from. I’ve got a huge backlog LOL. Lots of great things started that I need to dig into and finish.

For those…

Streets - U2 Cover (Live)

A live version of U2’s where the streets have no name. I’m trying to do more live things like this. I love the studio so much be because I love to arrange for other instruments! There is only one of…

The Weight - The Band Cover

A timeless song about people helping people. I’m not completely sure, but I think it was written about the great depression. I felt it was pertinent given all that is happening in the world right now. Take care of each…

Suite: Judy Blue Eyes - WFR covers CSN (Live)

I was cleaning off my phone and found this video from a rehearsal the last time Wilson Fifer Rose had a gig. I don’t get to play with these guys as much as I used to - it’s a shame…

Birdhouse In Your Soul - TMBG Cover

I have greatly enjoyed being a part of various TMBG fan pages on Facebook. These fan pages are really quite active, so as a result, they are always doing fan-made cover albums! I did participate a little for the John…

Wonderful Christmastime - Paul McCartney Cover

Merry Christmas to all! I was derailed pretty badly this month and wasn’t sure I’d get this one done in time for Christmas! Well - here it is! And it’s only after 3am on Christmas morning! But - the problem…

Can You Forgive Her - Pet Shop Boys Cover

A great song in 12/8 time originally done by the genius techno band The Pet Shop Boys. Really, these guys are criminally underrated in my opinion. Check out their melodic and quirky album “Very.” Great song craftsmanship. Any of their…

Out of Jail - TMBG Cover

Hey. I covered a song by one of my favorite bands of all time, They Might Be Giants. I made it my own and added horns. In fact, there is steamy hot sax all over this sucker. This is an…

Golden Slumbers - Beatle Cover

I recorded this live on my phone about a year ago. Stumbled across it just recently. With the remix of Abbey Road being released soon, I figured, “what the heck? why not post it?” This is one of the greatest…

You and I - Ashly Will Cover (Live)

This cover is a bit different in that it’s stripped down, under-produced, and totally live. I don’t usually do very simple videos and I’m not sure why, so I think I’m going to throw more of these live and “off…

Rocket Man - Elton John Cover

A cover of Elton John’s Rocket Man just in time for the 4th of July. I had fun coming up with the arrangement on this one. I slowed it down just a tiny bit and gave it more of a…

You Just May Be The One - Monkees Cover

One of my favorite Monkees songs you’ve probably never heard! Funny story, Margie’s drum parts were recorded 5 hours before she gave birth to our son Oliver! She was having labor pains but wanted to do something to stay busy…

Epitaph - King Crimson Cover (Acoustic)

A stripped down version of King Crimson’s Epitaph. The acoustic guitars were played by Poor Li who I believe is from France. When I recorded Philhelmon’s version of this song, one of my youtube subscribers directed me to Poor Li’s…

No Matter What - Badfinger Cover

I finally had a chance to record my own version of the one of the greatest pop-rock songs ever written. Bad Finger’s No Matter What came out in the late sixties and has everything I look for a in a…

Run - Snow Patrol Cover

My all acoustic version of Snow Patrol’s “Run” from their album Final Straw which came out in 2003. I completely missed this song when it came out. One of my patron’s asked me to cover it and I was delighted…

The Hawaii Five-O Theme

I was asked to record this as a favor for my local community theatre. They wanted to use the original recording, but can’t since it costs money to do that. The composition is ok to use, but the recording is…
