Sorry guys – i know i’m a bit late (got caught up with some work and all). But enough of the excuses, here we go:
The day before yesterday I was caught in a state of complete writer’s (blogger’s) block. I could think of not one post to write about – it’s too soon to be throwing around yet another Cover Collection, too early for a Song Of The Week post, and two posts regarding acoustic music in a row seems quite lame.. After brainstorming for an hour or two I decided I should devote a number of posts to artists who aren’t receiving close to the attention some of them undoubtedly deserve. These artists range from YouTube groups, to professional bands – all of whom are just living in the shadows of other popular bands.
So without further ado (yes – that is actually how you spell the word): let us welcome David Sides!
David Sides is known for creating beautiful piano covers of popular tunes. Like many who took the ‘YouTube Path’, David Sides started off with one video and then shot off to international fame. After being discovered through his piano solo version of the smash-hit ‘Apologise’ he worked on several other covers – ‘Halo’, ‘The Scientist’, and ‘Fix You’ to name a few – and ultimately started working on a piano-learning software titled ‘Playground Sessions’ (looking for a fun, new way to learn the piano? Definitely check the program out! Link at bottom), which was released in late 2011.
For you piano-junkies out there, I definitely suggest looking into this man’s work. But then again, if you’re a true piano-addict you’d probably already have heard of him.

Thanks for reading – ’till next time!
