Introducing Reuben Fillies | Guest Post #3

My Youtube Channel was created about three years ago, but it wasn't for music. Back then, it was mostly for skating videos. I only recently started posting covers of songs I like and I started to really focus on my music around the middle of 2015. That's also when I got the recording equipment I use to make my covers.

I love listening to artists and bands such as The 1975. A few other favourites include John Mayer, Al Bairre, Shortstraw, Beatenberg, Ed Sheeran, Michael Jackson, Matthew Mole, Sia and so many more. My biggest musical inspiration is most definitely Ed Sheeran. My friends are always telling me I play too much of his music!

When it comes to my free time, I obviously play a lot of music. However, I also really enjoy taking photos, hanging out with my close mates, watching series and exercising! As for personal style, I honestly don't know how to describe my personal clothing style hahaha! I wouldn't go as far as saying hipster exactly, but I do wear hipster-like clothing. As for my music, I guess you could call it "hipster" music, but I prefer calling it acoustic pop hahah!

To me, the best part about playing music is jamming along with friends. Nothing beats a good jam session when everyone is feeling the groove! There are so many  more artists I would like to cover. So far I've done Ed Sheeran and Bon Iver, but I'd like to cover more. To name a few, I'd say Labrinth, Sam Smith and James Bay. I have written a few original songs, which I will release when I am back in South Africa next year but, for now, here's my cover of 'Skinny Love' by Bon Iver.
