Just as I started doing these YouTube covers, my good friend and fantastic drummer @mattmusty suggested that I listen to and cover “Heartbeat” by The Fray. I took a listen to the song and loved it. I immediately wanted to cover the song but wasn’t sure how to approach it. I tried it on guitar. No, that doesn’t work. Piano. Yes. Gotta have that epic bass line driving through the song. At this point I’m rocking out and playing this up-tempo song on the piano. I’m not sure what happened next, but I somehow end up deciding that slowing the song down completely and opening up Autotune and a vocoder in Logic while channeling Imogen Heap and Bon Iver was a good idea. When I first heard “Hide and Seek” back when it blew up, I knew I wanted to cover it or integrate a vocoder on something. Finally found a way to use it. Hope you enjoy!
