Music Videos from Other Artists whom I like. Mostly under-the-radar artists, not necessarily “unsigned”.

Video Thursday (2-for-1)- Wayfaring Stranger

The Broken Circle Breakdown - Wayfaring Stranger
 Well of course I’ve seen the Oscar-nominated Belgian movie “The Broken Circle Breakdown”, where this song is placed in a key-moment of the story. But I didn’t think it would hold up this strong just by itself. Just another proof the lead-actress Veerle Baetens (who also sings the song) is world-class !

In comparison, the modern take of Ed Sheeran can be found here: Wayfaring Stranger by Ed Sheeran. It was recorded in one take and is a beautiful showcase of his voice looping technique. But, I do prefer the intensity of the first one. What about you? (yes, commenting is possible).

Video Thursday – Fires&Earthquakes Live at Mille Mechelen

Carl Durant Fires and Earthquakes Live At Mille Cafe Mechelen 2014
Here’s a new song I performed at the “Laaghangend Fruit” showcase at Cafe Mille in Mechelen. Enjoy ! It’s an uptempo song about fires, earthquakes and leaving California after having lived in San Diego for 11 years… returning to Leuven, Belgium.

Video Thursday – Eva&Mikaël sing “Say Something” on The Voice

Time for a new Video on Thursday ! I met Eva during one of the pre-auditions for The Voice van Vlaanderen, season 3 (2014). And after a decent performance in the Blind Auditions I have to admit she totally blew me  away with this performance in the Battles… and not just me…  Go like her Facebook page !!

Video Thursday: New song “Coming Home” – Live at San Diego Airport Feb 2013

Coming Home by Carl Durant (Live at San Diego Airport 2013)

Shot in between two airport announcements (great timing!) this is a song I wrote over the Christmas Holidays end of last year. A lot of things going through my head at the time, but while finishing this song it all started to make sense again…

So far 2013 has been a lot better than 2012. Let’s keep it that way !

 

Video Thursday: My cover of “Mad World (Tears for Fears)”

Carl Durant - Mad World (Acoustic cover Tears for Fears)

Surprise… a video from my home bedroom back in Belgium. Lots of memories and lots of studying happened here. And now some singing&guitar playing too (Or actually: this is were I started playing guitar too). Enjoy !
Next week I’ll release a new song with a video… (Like this one it’s a live, single take recording with a bit of cleanup on video and audio afterwards.)
