I admire Ed Sheeran, who wouldn’t? He is brilliant songwriter and he’s kinda cute. I would definitely ask him out for a date if he was living in Finland. But he’s not…Well I just need to keep on daydreamin’ . Maybe one day! 😉 Here’s my cover of Shape Of You. Hope you dig my version as much as I enjoyed making it. It was a lot of fun!
Here’s my respond to the ‘Martin Acoustic Guitar Challenge’ by the Finnish artist Anssi Kela. Anssi Kela put up a competition in which he asked the fans to make a cover song of free of choice from his latest album Nostalgia. The winner song/video gets a plenty of sympathy and a custom made Anssi Kela Martin & Co. Acoustic guitar.
To be frank I don’t mind about the competition, for me this is about being creative, finding new interpretation of the tune and having a bit of fun. I just enjoyed doing it.
I covered Sabrina’s eurohit song Boys (Summertime Love) a while ago and shot a video to the song. A MIRACLE happened – she was performing in my old hometown Seinäjoki at the time when we were shooting the video. It was quite unbelievable since she hasn’t performed in Finland in 15 years.
So we contacted her manager, sent over my cover song and asked if she wanted to be in my video.. And she said YES!!
