The YouTube stars The Piano Guys have added another popular franchise to their repertoire. This time they’ve covered The Lord of the Rings.
Back in September, The Piano Guys signed a record deal with Sony. They were told by Sony, “We love what you guys do, we want to take it to the next level, keep doing what you’re doing.” The album is now available, and you can get it for $10 on Amazon.
Who exactly are The Piano Guys? The Piano Guys cover a variety of music. They’ve covered everything from Mozart to Adele. There are two on-screen musicians in the group – Jon Schmidt plays the piano while Steven Sharp Nelson plays the cello. There are three other equally important members. Paul Anderson, Tel Stewart, and Al van der Beek do the behind-the-scenes work that makes the great videos that The Piano Guys produce.
The Piano Guys most recent cover is of The Lord of the Rings. They’ve covered other fandom related music before. From Harry Potter, Star Wars, and Pirates of the Caribbean to Adele, One Direction, and Bruno Mars, The Piano Guys have a large repertoire of covers.
