Avril Lavigne – I’m With You Cover

Avril Lavigne and Brandon Krogel

My latest cover song.

I really have to get into the habit of updating more. I haven’t been up to a whole lot lately in terms of creating. The daily grind is taking up all my time. I’m sure plenty of you can relate to that one! Either way, I definitely wish I had more time to devote to creating new content. Hopefully we’ll reach that point eventually. In the meantime, just gotta keep chugging along.

So my latest cover that I’ve been working on is I’m With You by Avril Lavigne. Despite the fact that this song came out in 2002, it was a favorite of mine back then and it still remains a favorite of mine today. I honestly have huge respect for Avril Lavigne. She has an incredible singing range and she’s been on the scene for almost two decades. Watching her start off in the teenage angst of pop punk and then move onto her most recent material—which reflects sophistication and an element of maturity—it’s been exciting to watch her music evolve over the years. 

Avril Lavigne I'm With You Cover

If anyone knows me, they know that the early 2000’s produced some of my favorite music and really set the foundation for the music I would come to enjoy and the style in which I would write in. Everything from much of the pop music at the time, all the way to the screamo/emo/scene music that was popular during those days—I really identified with that period of music and as such, that’s why you’ll see a lot of these old school tracks turning up in my covers.

Anyways if you were ever a fan of I’m With You by Avril Lavigne then I hope you enjoy this cover. If you have any suggestions for what covers I should do next, give me a shout and let me know!

Holy Moley It’s Been Awhile

Wow my last update was almost two years ago. Good job Brandon. I’m not sure why it took me this long to post an update. It doesn’t feel like two years. That’s life though I guess. The daily grind had me pinned down for the longest time. Combine that with crippling depression and anxiety and I was lucky if I could just get to work and survive the day. Not to be too much of a bummer but in all honesty, life felt pretty grim for a while there and it made it hard to work on my pursuits. Either way, I’ve undergone a ton of transformations in this past year which has ultimately helped me reach the place I’m at now.

For the first time, I feel capable. I feel like I can. My eyes are set on creating a better future instead of longing for the distant past. I’ve gained resolve to be a better person and I’ve begun to let go of the things that have held me back for so long.

This is my latest track entitled “Babe”. It’s more of an EDM style track that I feel like would get your hands up at the club. This isn’t really typical for me to make a song like this but I enjoyed experimenting with this direction. I think this song was born from a sense of freedom and I owe much of that feeling to my wonderful girlfriend who has been a tremendous support in my life over this last year. She is my babe and she has helped me find freedom when I could not find it on my own.

New track!

Hey everyone,

So I recorded a new video of my latest song called “Shadows” and threw it on YouTube. It’s a little different then most of my other stuff but I think it turned out okay. Let me know your thoughts! Hope you dig it!

In other news, there really isn’t a whole lot I suppose. I’m hoping to have the time to finally start doing some shows here in Kelowna and network with other musicians. I’ve been away from the local music scene for so long I don’t even know who is around anymore. Work has taken most of my time these last bunch of years, which has made it difficult to get out there but now I’ve gone down to four days a week so fingers crossed I can get out my house more often haha.
