Saturday Morning Fun:: Empire State of It

Rich Aucoin


Rich Aucoin is one of the most creative folks we've come across since moving back to Halifax, so we're always keeping tabs on what he's up to next, and as such, we were very interested when he posted the video below on Facebook. In his own words: "Hey, so I noticed my song IT is the same chord progression as EMPIRE STATE OF MIND so I, naturally, made a mash-up". And what a mash-up it is, check the youtube description for the genesis of the song, but it's pretty great stuff in my humble. If you like that, keep it locked on the hill for coverage of Rich's new album, the concisely named We're All Dying To Live : Public Publication EP/Over The Top! LP, which will come out next year and features some 500 Canadian musicians.
