Rob Thomas is among the latest musicians to take his musical talents to social media in hopes of entertaining his fans amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Welcome to #SocialDistanceSessions.
“During these uncertain times the entire world is shutting itself down,” the Matchbox Twenty singer writes. “Part of that means that people aren’t going out and enjoying live music or any entertainment.”
He adds, “I’m kicking this off and I invite all my brothers and sisters in the music world to go on Instagram and share a little something with people to help them while they hunker down in their homes.”
Thomas has so far posted two performances: a cover of the 1987 Crowded House smash “Don’t Dream It’s Over” and his own solo single, “Streetcorner Symphony.”
Rob, who’s supposed to kick off a tour with Matchbox Twenty in July, also used Instagram tags to invite his pals Cyndi Lauper, Counting Crows, Alanis Morissette, John Mayer, Chris Daughtry, Jason Mraz, Ingrid Michaelson, Matt Nathanson and John Legend to participate in #SocialDistanceSessions.
