Gift of Music 2014-15




Over at SongFight!, Niveous is conducting his 11th Gift of Music sidefight. It's like a Secret Santa for songwriters,You pick 4 songs you would like someone to cover. Others do the same. You get play Santa and create a cover song from their 4 choices. And we all open the song presents together!

The real winner has been the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, who receives money donated in the name of the 'winners' of the contest. This year I'd like to help boost the funds up to make Santa extra cheery. So if you have some spare change, you can drop it in the PitchIn box above. Thanks and I hope you join up to play Santa as well. Song choices are due before November 29th to enter!

Glenn Case

I first heard of Glenn Case via the website SongFight.org, and ever since I've been a fan. He recently put together a Kickstarter to fund a long overdue album. There was no question I was going to contribute, but when I saw the rewards...well I knew I had to start saving some cash. - Spin

Asim Chin


Wow, this one has been a long time coming.  The beginning of the video is 100% correct.  It has probably been about 2 years since I started nagging Asim to cover this song.  I've had a little help from some of you at times as well.  I've been subscribed to Asim for a long time, and if you're not...you should be.  I might post a video response showing how much of a pest I made myself while waiting for this.  Anyways, thanks Asim, it was worth the wait. - Spin

Chris Commisso


I think Chris explains this one well enough after the song.  When he did his Kickstarter, I couldn't pass up having one of my favorite YouTubers cover my favorite song. - Spin

Chris Cogott


I don't care who you are. Chris Cogott probably sounds better than you do. Get over it.

I don't have a video of this song because Chris is very shy and lives in the Witness Protection Program. Actually he's not, but I want you to treat him as if he were. Because he doesn't know he's awesome, and if any of you bastidges tell him how good he is he may go pro and not have time to collaborate with the rest of us poor schlubs anymore. Then I'll have to come to your house and strangle you, personally.
