ARTIST OF THE WEEK: MARIA ZOUROUDIS.

It’s not every day I find a YouTube cover artist that I absolutely adore, so when I do find one I like to make a really big deal about them –mostly cause I think they deserve all the support they can get. This week’s pick is a Sarasota native who just so happens to be a Gator like me & now lives in Miami.

The Greek-American songstress not only creatively turns her version of popular songs into something that tends to sound better than the original, but she also writes her own music, and writes songs for other artists as well.

If you’re in the Miami area, you may be lucky enough to catch her performing live. Go on the link below to find out when & where she will be playing around town.

But before you do that, check out some of my favorite covers by Maria below & tell me what you think!

You can watch more of her videos & listen to some of her original work on her website www.mariazouroudis.com

ARTIST OF THE WEEK: DREW TABOR.

A few months ago I discovered Danny Vola on YouTube (& if you haven’t heard of him yet you MUST CLICK THIS RIGHT NOW because he’s amazing & is really getting a lot of exposure now). But this post isn’t about Danny, it’s about a girl who might as well be the female version of him.

Drew Tabor is an aspiring musician living in LA, & her version of Nicki Minaj’s ‘Super Bass’ is out of this world. She completely transforms the song into her own & nails it. I’m not a huge fan of ‘Super Bass’ but I absolutely love love love Drew’s cover. Check it out below!

My wish come true would be for Danny Vola & Drew Tabor to perform together. Make it happen guys & spread the word about these two!!

Update on Danny Vola.

A couple of weeks ago I wrote a post about Danny Vola, a guy I chose as my “Artist of the Week” who I found on YouTube. Danny covers all sorts of hip hop songs while playing his acoustic guitar & is freaking amazing at what he does. His most popular cover is ‘No Hands’ by Waka Flocka.

Soon after I wrote a post on Danny, I found out through Twitter that he was going to perform on stage in Atlanta with Waka Flocka himself. I couldn’t believe it –obviously what Suzie Says has magical powers ;)

Anyways, check out the video Danny sent me of his performance in ATL. What do you think??

ARTIST OF THE WEEK: DANNY VOLA.

It’s the kind of music you’d think to hear at a book store, a coffee shop or even serenade your girlfriend with –until you listen to the lyrics. Adding a twist to all of your current favorite hip hop songs, Danny Vola is an acoustic genius.

The Detroit, Michigan native has covered songs from Lil Wayne, Wiz Khalifa, Flo Rida, & Wacka Flocka & has the ability to make them sound like the most romantic songs ever written.

His website is under construction right now but you can still download his mixtape ‘Look Ma, Both Hands’ for free at DannyVola.com . Check out some of his songs below & tell me what you think!

Special thanks to @nickontheradio from Y-100 for introducing me his music! Make sure to follow Nick’s blog at NickOnTheRadio.com for all the latest in Tech, Music, & Pop Culture!
