Jon Capus - Hums (Original Acoustic Demo)

August 6, 2020 - videos

This time, we’re time travelling back to 2012 - I originally released this on my YouTube channel eight years ago and it’s been a staple of my setlists ever since (in fact, I don’t think I’ve played a single solo show without this song). I remember when I first wrote Hums, lyrically and musically I wanted to write something happy and simple, and I think I accomplished both of those in spades. I’ve even heard... Read more...

Great Expectations - The Gaslight Anthem (Acoustic Cover)

July 30, 2020 - videos

The year is 2008 - the world is either dealing with or about to deal with a financial crisis, the likes of which hasn’t been seen in decades. Hard to believe that was a dozen years ago, and harder still to believe we’re going through another, worse, global crisis in 2020. I’ve always loved The Gaslight Anthem’s first few records.

I might do some more weird and unconventional... Read more...

Call out racism when you see it, whether it’s family or friends or strangers, whether explicit or implicit. Discuss current events with those close to you, and don’t let... Read more...

Archie, Marry Me - Alvvays (Acoustic Cover)

April 26, 2020 - videos

I think I first discovered Alvvays just before or around the time that their second album, Antisocialites, came out. After ravenously consuming their debut album, I was happy to have more material to dive into; as the band expanded their repertoire, my love for them also grow by approximately 10 tracks. While their second album is very good, I find myself often jumping back to 2014 and listening to their self-titled debut Alvvays. Track number... Read more...
