MBTA Buskers Cover Taylor Swift, Pay the Bills at the Same Time
These guys are blowing up right now.
Live from a T station near you, Rhett Price and Josh Knowles are bringing their talents right to your daily commutes. The two violinists, and former Berklee College of Music students, manage to make a living off of performing at various MBTA stations.
The video above, their cover of Taylor Swift's "I Knew You Were Trouble," has gone from 10,000 to nearly 50,000 views overnight. With their reputation growing, the duo is planning a trip to New York City to play out in their subways as well, hoping to continue their successes in Boston. Shouldn't be too difficult to go anywhere and make a killing considering the amount of talent these they have. I could listen to them play all day.
Thanks to The Big Example for finding this video.
