Artist Interview: Rob Paravonian

Rob ParavonianAs I write this, Rob Paravonian’sPachelbel Rant” on YouTube has been viewed 7.6 million times. To give you a sense of how big that number is, if you put a cinnamon roll in the center of a football field, you’d have a really confusing and pointless scenario because honestly, do you need an analogy to understand that 7.6 million people is a whole friggin’ buttload of views?

In the famous viral video, Paravonian goes through one of the most famous chord progressions in the history of music, showing (with impeccable comedic timing) all of the pop musicians that have ripped off the series of chords over the years. While comedy isn’t necessarily what Fresh Scouts focuses on, there’s no doubting that there’s a market out there for musical comedy, and considering Paravonian grew up playing in orchestras and rock bands he knows the industry maybe as well as any “real” musician out there.

So we caught up with him at a recent show and talked about comedy, music, life, and love, the results of which are here for your viewing pleasure. Watch it, favorite it, subscribe, and then pass it around. We’re aiming for at least 7.7 million views. Think cinnamon rolls on a football field.
