Beginning January 2009, piano pop/rock singer-songwriter David Baron uploaded a new video of music on YouTube 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.
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.
