Jornt Karel

Another of those discoveries that a system like Youtube, at its best, can make possible, is Jornt Karel; he’s a musician and singer who lives in a village called Easterlittens in Friesland (this location was gleaned by Google, as there’s only a little information on his channel), whose cover of “Heavy Metal Lover” is somehow perfect, even though it does not end but rather terminates too early. Yet Karel doesn’t seem like a one-⁠number wonder: he’s not even twenty years old and is already someone whom one ought to be hearing more from – much more, and by no means only covers of other people’s material.
