This website is dedicated to hosting links to ALL of the covers of Inverse T. Clown's song, "Today's the Day". Inverse T. Clown has invited indie artists from across the world to cover this song. All covers are welcome, no style is refused (so far), and each cover gets a prominent page of its own. Want to cover? Get started HERE
When I search Kickstarter to back musicians I normally look for someone different. Someone unlike we've heard from so far. And most importantly I look for talent. Crimson Apple had both of those things. Most of the "Today's The Day" covers have been by men. Even though a few women have covered the song, we haven't had an all girl rock band do it until now! Not only did they kill it, but they did it on video!
Pigfarmer Jr. is a SpinTunes, Song Fight, Nur Ein & FAWM veteran. In other words this guy makes a lot of music. Thankfully he decided (without any pushing...) to put his own spin on everyone's favorite song.
Years ago I got whitelisted on Zack Scott's private Minecraft server & ended up making a lot of new gaming friends because of it. One of the first people to get whitelisted on that server was Wil. He was never all that active on the server, so we never got to know each other much. Years after joining the server Wil got involved with a project trying to get Kickstarted. It looked like a cool project, and even though the project wasn't music related, I knew Wil was a musician. There was no cover reward mentioned on Kickstarter, so I contacted him through Zack, and we created our own Kickstarter reward via e-mails. I donated to the project & we got a cool new "Today's The Day" cover.
When I stumbled onto the Lords Of The Trident's Kickstarter I was blown away by their pitch, and then their music. It didn't take long for me to decide to back their project at the cover song level. After their project was funded they did an amazing job of keeping their backers updated throughout the process of recording the album & fulfilling all the rewards. It's a shame that everyone on Kickstarter doesn't show the same level of appreciation & respect to their fans that this group does. Mad props to them for that, and for the amazing music they make.
PS: Bill House did an amazing job with his contribution to the cover as well.
The Doubleclicks (Angela & Aubrey Webber) have a new album out called "Dimetrodon" as well as this awesome cover of our favorite song of all time. I highly recommend their album (I got a copy), so check these ladies out!
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!
