Yu Dive Deep podcast: Rocky Kramer dives in to explore what our identity really is, as well as paying tribute to Aqua!
Rocky Kramer performs a rockin' version of The Star-Spangled Banner in honor of becoming a U.S. citizen on March 4th, making him a true Norwegian-American.
The Star-Spangled Banner is the national anthem of the United States. Lyrics by Francis Scott Key. Music by John Stafford Smith.
Today is a truly special day in my life. This morning, I was sworn in as a U.S. citizen at my naturalization oath ceremony in downtown Los Angeles, making me a true Norwegian-American. Thank you to everyone who's made this possible; it has been an amazing journey!
God bless America!
When I first started playing acoustic guitar, “Babe, I’m Gonna Leave You” was one of the first songs I wanted to learn. I loved the dynamics and how Page’s acoustic guitar compliments Plant’s gentle vocal, building it up to a frenzy, when Bonham starts hitting his drums and timpani like the god of thunder. With the song being on their first album, this was an early example of the astonishing dynamics and the pure power of Led Zeppelin.
My cover started out with just the original instrumentation, but my brain began imagining horns in various places and strings in others, adding a symphonic element that pushes the song into new territories. My final touch was adding a Jimmy Page inspired guitar solo at the end, as a tribute to his iconic and influential playing style.

2020 has been a year full of challenges, and even though many of them were of a pandemic nature, I wanted to challenge myself both musically and creatively, all while staying safe at home. How? By making covers that pay tribute to the artists that inspired me growing up or more recently and making a video for every one of them. For each cover, I took inspiration not only from that artist, but from other artists, genres and concepts, which allowed me to not just rerecord the song, but presenting it in a new and intriguing way. I had a great time making these covers this year, and as we're approaching the end of it, I thought it would be fun to make cover art for each one and put them together in a quick end-of-the-year recap to revisit them one more time before we move on to new adventures in the new year. Thank you for listening.
