We enjoy taking other artists’ music and crafting it according to our own style and musings. On some level, this is just for our own entertainment and enjoyment. But I also think it’s a professional courtesy. We take music that’s pretty good and then see what we can do to make it better. Take, for example, the Grammy nominated The Middle. Sure, it’s already a fine song, but we thought it might be improved if we traded in its dance floor and synth for our blues scales and fretless bass. We think it works quite well.
Zedd & company have literally a million times as many plays on YouTube as we do. But we’ve got a better following at the vegan coffee shops.
