Beginning January 2009, piano pop/rock singer-songwriter David Baron uploaded a new video of music on his YouTube channel at http://youtube.com/DBaron84 weekly for fans to enjoy. The YouTube series, entitled “David Baron Piano Covers,” showcased David’s unique piano-rock versions of covers both classic and new, and has received over 140,000 views to date.
Now David has compiled these intimate, one-take performances into a full-length album simply entitled, Piano Covers. Recorded live in David’s apartment in San Francisco, Piano Covers features David at his most musically naked, with just a mic and a piano, and a little acoustic guitar thrown in here and there.
In support of the April 27, 2010 release of his new album Piano Covers, David Baron will embark on a solo piano west coast tour. The tour, entitled “David Baron and a Piano,” will include a co-headlining show with Counting Crows Lead Guitarist Dan Vickrey at Hotel Utah in San Francisco, and a Piano Covers Album Release Party at the House of Blues on the Sunset Strip in Los Angeles.
