Hey guys! I know it’s been a long while since I’ve last posted on my blog, but I figured that I would start it up again with another post about *Music*! Also, I feel inclined to let you into some of the stuff that’s going on in my life right now that might prohibit me from posting every. single. day. from now on. First off, softball conditioning is starting up! (hence the swing pun in the title) I now also have a job, though because of my age and busy schedule I can only work for 3 hours a day and like, 2 days a week. Marching season just ended here recently, and I am proud to say that we made it to state! Performing in Indie was such an incredible experience, I really hope it’ll happen again sometime in the next 2 years. We didn’t win, but we got our highest score there of a 69.00. School has been hard here recently. I’ve been finding my AP course a little hard to understand, but I’m getting by. Anyway, maybe now I can start talking about music. 😛

I’ve recently been listening to a lot of composition and orchestral covers by a guy named Sam Yung on YouTube. If you haven’t heard any of his music I definitely suggest it to anyone who is a fan of modern music and orchestras. He makes some amazing paramour covers, and covers for other, newer songs as well. But, the thing I like most about his music is his original pieces. Whether it’s a piece for a piano or for a whole orchestra, he never ceases to amaze me. His music is always so graceful, elegant, and heartfelt. One of my favorite songs that he has composed is titled “Echoes”. He has just recently posted it on YouTube, but he says that it is actually one of his older pieces. If I had to pick a second favorite, I would say it was a tie between his cover for Sia’s “Chandelier” or Lana Del Ray’s “Young and Beautiful”. He makes every song sad and haunting. Every. Single. One. Even Miley Cyrus’s “Wrecking Ball”! Now, I suck at conclusions, but if I could write a good one, it would be something along the lines of you should definitely check him out, you won’t be sorry.
