Grow – Frances (Cover by Nicky Arnelle & Billy Armstrong)

Hi folks,

Recently I recorded the piano part for ‘Grow’ by Frances for a great singer called Nicky Arnelle. Check out the results!

Love Yourself – Justin Beiber (One Night With Bill) Cover


Hi folks,

I teamed up with my good friends from Wood Cottage Collective to bring you another cover with the ensemble ‘One Night With Bill’. You may remember my very first video with this group with a cover of ‘Sleepwalking’ by Bring Me The Horizon, you can check that out here.

Keep your eyes pealed as we will be releasing a new cover very soon.

Thanks for watching folks.

2014 Piano & Pies Review

I’ve had quite an eventful first year here at Piano & Pies HQ including lots of content for the website. Below is a selection of 5 of my favourite posts that I have uploaded since my website started in January.

Sleepwalking – Bring Me The Horizon (Cover)

This was my first ever post to the site and my most popular Youtube video to date. It was a really fun video to make along with 3 close friends. Over the Christmas break we will hopefully be getting back together to record more songs for you to listen to on my site.Bowburn Photography

I love taking my camera out and taking pictures, and this blogpost has a few of my favourite captures of the year. I hope you like them.

Abandon Window – Jon Hopkins (Piano Tutorial)

Another popular video of mine is this piano tutorial of a brilliant song by Jon Hopkins, an amazing artist. I wanted to learn how to play the song but couldn’t find any good tutorial videos online so I decided to make my own. I have two other tutorial videos, ‘Laura’ by Bat For Lashes, and ‘Farewell To The Fairground’ by White Lies.
Make You Feel My Love – Adele/Bob Dylan (Cover Featuring Lee-ann Gardner)

A great cover that myself and Lee-ann Gardner, a good friend of mine, recorded several months ago.
Seaham Soundscape (Original Composition)

Next up is an original composition I made for my Masters degree at Newcastle University. After my degree finished I decided to return to Seaham and record several video clips to show alongside the audio track.

Thanks for the support over the past year folks,

Billy
