Tones and I – Dance Monkey (drum cover) Mia Morris
I’ve been writing and recording with any of my spare time so far in 2020 but since I know many of you are currently stuck at home, I thought I’d do a quick cover of a song by Australian singer Tones and I called, Dance Monkey. This song came out in 2019 but I heard it again recently and thought it might be fun groove to play along with. This isn’t a drum cover where I show how the original track was likely played but instead, it’s just me noodling on top of a song that didn’t have a live drummer on it at all.
Once again, I’m using my stand-up kit and I’m still experimenting with arranging my drums and finding ways to get all the notes I want while using one of my limbs to stand :) If you haven’t seen this set up before, I’ve been using it when I play out for some other artists and when I’m fronting a band myself.
I’m 15 years old and I want to be a professional musician when I grow up. I try to play lots of instruments but the one that I feel most at home on is a drum set. I would say the only thing that impresses me more than a great musician is a great songwriter so I also spend a lot of my time writing and recording. I thought it would help me keep focused on music if I started a drum series where I learned a new song every couple of weeks. After 5 years, it’s now turned into a larger musical search but my goal hasn’t changed. Hopefully, I will keep doing music, keep loving it and keep getting better.
