The super talented and good friend of The Eargazm, Brian Lockwood, has released a breezy yet compelling cover of The Lumineers uber-hit “Ho Hey”. There are upwards of 890,000 covers of the song scattered across internet but there aren’t many quite like Brian’s. For starters, Brian takes us on an brief tour of his pimp bachelor pad in his sweatpants, MTV cribs spoof style. Very rarely does an artist allow the world into the privacy of their homes, especially one as seemingly introverted as Brian.

The cover itself is quite impressive. Brian’s guitar work is fantastic. The finger picking adds a layer of melody that exceeds the original. Brian effortlessly uses the guitar’s percussive elements in a way that calls to mind Jack Johnson. There is no denying Brian’s charisma and captivating presence. It certainly helps he’s a fan of The Gaz. Watch out for this dude…
