We here at found it! are strong supporters of the independent artists. We have also found that it’s difficult to directly support an artist withour own, hard-earned cash. This is doubly true if the artists don’t have an album that we can download, or have other ways of giving them money as a thank-you for their work.
Fredde Gredde is a talented musician who came to our attention through doing these rather interesting medleys.
Here he is with a medley that is a rather toungue-in-cheek approach to the games that most of us grew up playing. He’s put lyrics to the theme tunes from those games. Check this out, it’s rather… different.
One of the pleasures of this blog is finding talent where they are obviously the next big thing, ideally before they’ve actually made it. One of those that’s most definitely in need of watching is Jet Tangerine.
Unlike many of the others featured on here, she’s one of the few that offers a large number of music that she’s written herself.
Jon Cozart is definately one to watch, though saddly he doesn’t update his channel anywhere near often enough, that is, he hasn’t for nearly a year (as of the time of writing). That said the stuff that he has put up is quite impressive, especially when you remember it’s all just him. This is the video that first brought him to my attention :
If you live in the USA, you will know that as a result of the economic squeeze, there’s a cut in free music programs in schools. VH1 Save The Music is seeking to reverse that trend by donating 100% of an album to the charity. The Album is available for free, or as much as you’d like to donate.
I found out about this program after watching this video from Key Of Awesome (who have disabled embedding, so on some browsers/platforms, you may have to click the link):
Not Litterally productions have a bit of an obsession : Harry Potter. It has begun recently to expand towards other things, but it is Harry Potter that definately brought them to my attention. This rather catchy version of “Born This Way” will endear itself to fans everywhere.
