Guest Post: Nothing Else Matters

Aaron Zimmer is making a name for himself in NYC and across the country not only for his brand of pop/rock, but also for his engaging one-man live show that includes a multitude of instruments, percussion and loops.

Through my partnership with Bandpage Experiences, Diana in Chicago commissioned me to record her all time favorite song, “Nothing Else Matters” by Metallica. The premise is simple: You pick the song, I’ll arrange and record my rendition of it at my little studio here in Brooklyn. I’m also doing custom cover art for all of the songs too, which is fun.

Recording cover songs for my friends and fans is great for lots of reasons. First, I get to spend the day (or 2) working on music that might not necessarily be in my wheel house. Its good exercise and practice for me as an artist. And, you get a brand new version of a song you already love. Most of all though, I get to work one-on-one with other music lovers to create something that’s one-of-a-kind.

Never in a million years would I have considered recording my own version of a Metallica song. Because of Bandpage’s “Experience” platform and Diana’s input, I got the opportunity. And, my version didn’t come out too bad, I hope!
