A New Take On An Old Classic
We’ve been fans of 9-year-old YouTube drumming sensation Avery Molek ever since we saw him tear through Rush’s “Tom Sawyer,” and the way he’s evolving as a musician is absolutely amazing! Whether it’s playing with a broken arm or trying out something a little more technically challenging than usual, Avery’s not afraid to take the next step with his gift, and this week he absolutely blew us away when he tackled John Lennon’s “Imagine” on not just one, but two different instruments – he even sings, too!
Fun Fact: Avery’s been drumming since he was 2 years old and according to his mom, Avery plays entirely by ear and fills in with what he’s learned from his private drum lessons.
Shot in three parts, this video features Avery on keys, drums, and vocals for a classic so timeless that it can literally be interpreted a million and one ways and still touch your soul, which Avery’s take definitely does. The sky’s the limit for this incredibly talented young man – while we love seeing him rocking out behind his kit, there’s something intensely special about watching his talent as a musician evolve over time, and he seriously rocked that keyboard!
