Five-year-old production prodigy Miles Bonham (Miles Music Kid) has re-produced the Green Day classic Boulevard of Broken Dreams from scratch, playing and recording every instrument himself!
Bonham plays the guitar, bass, keys, vocals and harmonies on the song. He also multi-tracked, arranged and edited the entire recording in a professional DAW (digital audio workspace) using Apple's industry-leading Logic Pro software. Impressive!
The video notes that Bonham did it all by himself, but credits the final product's mixing and mastering to Matthew Thompson.
The cover is super-impressive but to us, it is the extent to which the little legend already knows his way around production that blows our minds the most, with his step-by-step guide to producing the song showing him to be an absolute natural. We suspect he has a future in this business!
Compare it go the Green Day original below.
Bonham has gone viral a few times already with his previous covers including the likes of Billie Eilish, Justin Bieber and Dr Dre but for us rock heads, this Boulevard Of Broken Dreams cover is only rivalled by learning that he learned the guitar parts from Led Zeppelin's classic Stairway To Heaven by ear! What a talent. You can see all of Mile's previous uploads on his YouTube channel.
If that's not enough ridiculously talented children for you for the day, you could always watch this video from The Ellen Show of 7-year-old Caleb Hayes covering Slipknot on national TV like it was nothing.
