WIN On Fresh: Kesha & Macklemore | Bon JoviMore »

You’ve heard the song a million times by now, and you may even be a little sick of Adele’s emotional break up ballad, “Someone Like You.” But along comes NYC subway (street) performer Damon Scott with a fresh and soulful take on the biggest song of the year!


How many times (if you’re a New Yorker, or have visited this fine city) have you walked on by a subway singer or a street performer without having enough interest to remove even one earbud? Let me answer, about a thousand, million times!

You may want to start paying more attention, especially when you’re up around 86th Street!

Damon Scott was filmed by a YouTuber as he belted out an amazing rendition of Adele’s “Someone Like You,” complete with the haunting echo of a subway platform and his own drumming!

    He also does great renditions of Rihanna’s songs…S&M, Disturbia. He plays that drum very well! His voice is amazing too!

    I will look for Damon in the subway. There are so many GREAT subway musicians in NYC! Have you ever seen the ‘Saw Lady’ playing at the 14th st station? Awesomeness:
