Hello, guys! This is our new cover of the famous song "Shake it off" by Taylor Swift. This single was out on the 18th of August, 2014. It ranked first in Billboard Hot 100 and later on was nominated for the Grammy Award. Just recently the song turned 6 years old and we decided to celebrate its birthday with singing it in our own way :) Charismatic singer Aniah Alves from the Netherlands helped me to create this video while mixing and mastering was done by a sound engineer Santiago Morillo Segovia from Columbia. Our international trio hopes that you have as much fun watching this cover as much as we had making it :) Special thanks to the Guitar-Guitar music store in Rostov-on-Don (Russia), where the video was shot, for providing financial support. If you wanna see more videos from me and my other international colleagues in the future make sure to subscribe. You can also support my music by donating money or hiring me as a studio musician: https://linktr.ee/olegmaximov
