Justin Baron – Change Your Mind (Live) *MUST-WATCH video!

December 9th, 2011 by | Music Video |

Justin Baron 5 600x334 Justin Baron   Change Your Mind (Live) *MUST WATCH video!Instruments, vocals, background vocals, everything, Justin Baron does it all in this video. It’s crazy when you hear how it all comes together and I have seen very few do this. ”Change Your Mind” was looped live in one take!

The song is about trying to get a girl to change her mind and instead of being scared and alone, she should take a chance and fall in love with you. Asking her to “take your time, but change your mind.”

Justin Baron was the official opener of Dave Patten‘s Exposure Tour this Fall and is gearing up to release his next project in 2012.

Stream “Change Your Mind” (Live) below and click more to watch the official video to Justin Baron putting it all together to create such a soulful unique sound through looping. DOWNLOAD

JustinBaron 600x450 Cover songs *Justin Baron, Local Natives, Collin McLoughlin, Mumford & King FantasticHaven’t busted out a cover song post in a while but here’s five dope covers ranging from gangsta rap to rock/pop to a classic by Simon & Garfunkel. Let us know which cover song you like the most!

Justin Baron is a newcomer that I found out about a week ago with his cover of OneRepublic‘s “Good Life”. I love that he takes it in a different direction with more emphasis on the piano and vocals.

A few months ago, LA indie/alternative band Local Natives performed one of Simon & Garfunkel‘s classics, “Cecilia”. I’m a huge fan of the original song as it is so when I heard the cover, it was hard to ignore how awesome it is to hear it covered. Loving the instrumentals and the group vocals.

Once again Collin McLoughlin continues with the cover song. He’s such a talented vocalist and solid composer with these covers yet and hearing him perform cover after cover makes me question his song-writing ability and originality. Collin if you are reading this, please release an original soon! Listen and download “Stereo Hearts mashup” which mixes “Lazy” by Bruno Mars and “Stereo Hearts” by Gym Class Hereos. 5-star!

So this cover is a year old but I only heard it within the last couple months. Hard to deny Mumford & Sons being one of the best folk rock bands today and Vampire Weekend being equally talented in whatever genre you want to stick them in. Loving the banjo and folk rock guitars in the song plus the vocals stand out with Marcus Mumford’s vocals. Download

Lastly my favorite electronic hip-hop duo King Fantastic put this song out a while ago covering Ice T with “Colors”. It only popped up on soundcloud a month ago and I had no doubt in my mind I would blog about this with some other dope covers. This is the only hip-hop song in the post, loving the instrumentals, rapping is dope, overall a quality song if you are into gangsta rap and/or like the electronic.
