Mae

Mae pretty much called it quits a couple years ago (besides a few reunion shows earlier this year), and singer Dave Elkins has since begun focusing on his solo project Schematic. To get in the holiday spirit, Dave's taken on a cover of Paul McCartney's love-it-or-hate-it Christmas song, "Wonderful Christmastime." He gives the song an airy spin, veering away from the bouncy original. The cover is available to purchase, and a stream of the song makes its premiere in this post, which you can hear below...

So cool and this cover is one of the best. I appreciate it much for sharing it here.

Why would you EVER want to cover, let alone listen to this song?

Dave puts his heart into this song. So good to have a Christmas song that we all love.

Lindsey actually said AGT did nothing for her sales. It was YT that got her popular. Zelda got her to 50K, now 1.7MIL. Lots of violinists and others cover "games" but why Lindsey rise so fast? I'm not talking about audio. I'm talking about performance art. Let's be honest. Even if Lindsey just did electronica WITHOUT the dance, she prolly still struggle. She's good, but violins aren't popular like guitars. THAT is why she is revolutionary. Besides, Lindsey composes multi-genre, not just techno.
