Jack Conte - YouTube Artist

If you know me, than you know I'm a big Radiohead fan. You also probably know that I like listening to a good quality cover song. Sure, it requires sifting through a lot of god-awful music (some of it I don't know if you can even call music) but when you stumble across stuff like Jack Conte's version of 'The National Anthem', it all seems worth it.

After you get done having a listen to that maybe you'll decide to check out some of his original tunes.
