So I’ve started listening to a new video game podcast, and it’s been pretty fun. It’s entertaining, it’s crude, and I’m having fun with is so far. But one of the hosts is a musician by the name of Gavin Dunne, who releases work under the name Miracle of Sound. His songs span a wide variety of styles and genres, and are largely inspired by video games and other geek culture mainstays.
Oh, and did I mention he does all the writing and performing all by himself?
That’s what I find really impressive. I’ve spent the past few days working my way through his back catalog (it’s available for streaming on Spotify and Youtube), and holy cow. I can’t even wrap my head around how much time and effort it would take to write and perform one song, let alone the sheer number that he’s cranked out. He’s like the Stephen King of prolific musicians (shut up, I happen to like Stephen King).
So if you’re looking for some new music to listen to, I can highly recommend Miracle of Sound. Take some time, check it out, maybe put it on in the background while you’re doing other stuff. It’s certainly made my past few work days more enjoyable.
