Nowadays, there so many independent artists you can found everywhere, especially in the internet, just search in YouTube and you'll see hundreds of them, making covers and showing amazing talents, how I wish I was among them but sad to say I don't have the talent but then again I'm good with just listening to them. :)
So for tonight's post I want to feature my newly discovered group of artists, ThePianoGuys. Believe me when I say that they make an amazing instrumental covers because they really DO! I'm glad that I was able to accidentally discover this people because now they are among my favorite YouTube artists along with Sungha Jung!
So what's their story?
The Piano Guys started out as a piano store in the small town of St. George, Utah. One day while Paul was selling pianos, Jon Schmidt walked in and asked if he could use a piano to practice before a concert. Paul was blown away by his talent and they began to create music videos together. At first the videos were very basic, but as time went on we created more and more involved productions. After we filmed a few videos with Jon, he introduced us to Steven Sharp Nelson, a cellist who was beyond anything we had ever seen. Jon and Steve had been performing together for several years, and we could see that together we'd all make a great team. The rest is history in the making. [excerpt: http://thepianoguys.com/music/]
Though I find it a bit humorous that they call their group as ThePianoGuys where in fact there is one Cellist among them. Hehe, just saying.
I really enjoy watching these people doing those beautiful instrumental covers that they make, not just because that they make great videos with all the setting, quality and everything but because of how obviously seen in their faces that they enjoy doing it and that's what I like about them. Seeing how much they appreciate creating such music just for the world to hear is a very fine deed to regard.
Right now they asking for help"to be able to take what we've been doing locally on a more global level -- playing concerts, holding workshops, and speaking to young people to encourage them to pursue life to its fullest and to make good music an integral part of their lives" excerpt from http://thepianoguys.com/music/, and I for one support these agenda, that's why if you want to give your own support, feel free to visit there website: http://thepianoguys.com
