Youtube musical performances

I’ve been listening to a few awesome performances on lately. One is from Ronald Jenkees playing the keyboard with a sick electric guitar hip hop effect goin… ridiculous. Ronald seems like an interesting guy to say the least, check him out.  His sound in this video rocks. Another performance I found is Ed-Alleyne Johnson ‘busking’ his electric violin setup on the streets of Chester, Wales. He’s using all types of awesome equipment to build his rhythms… loop pedal, distortion effects, running multiple harmonies throughout… absolutely sick.

I know MySpace has kinda become the center of the indy world and hopefully the messiah that will rejuvenate the industry, but YouTube may be where it all starts. Inspiring is a live vibe, its in the moment and that’s what’s been lost with the production of today. People can make catchy shit in the studio, but musicians can’t move a crowd of 30,000 anymore. There’s a few out there today that kill it, but not many. That’s what’s awesome about YouTube… it catches it live. I know Ed Johnson has been around for awhile, but hopefully performances like what Ronald put up will get him signed and help spread his .
