Discovering new music is one of my favorite things, and I am happy to report this week that I have stumbled upon a new duo whose music will blow you away. The duo I would like to introduce you to is The Piano Guys, which is made up of Jon Schmidt, who acts as the pianist for the duo as well as a songwriter, and Steven Sharp Nelson who performs as the cellist and also acts as a songwriter for the duo.

The two musicians primarily transform hit songs into covers that are beautiful and incredibly unique, for audiences to view on YouTube. However, they have original tracks as well. They’re covers have become so popular, that the duo is now selling out of tickets at venues all around the globe.

The story of how The Piano Guys came to be, and how they transformed a passion for music and a marketing strategy into a viral success is truly incredible. You can read their story here: http://thepianoguys.com/thepianoguys/ and check out their YouTube channel here: http://www.youtube.com/user/ThePianoGuys.

Below I’ve included a couple of my favorite covers from The Piano Guys! Enjoy!
