Violinist Turns Taylor Swift Songs And More Into Film Scores With Just 1 Instrument.

Musician Joel Sunny performs a Taylor Swift song on violin.

Have you ever wondered what your favorite pop songs would sound like as film scores? Meet Joel Sunny, a talented violinist on TikTok who composes cinematic instrumental versions of popular hits. Using different types of plucking and bowing techniques, he creates the effect of multiple instruments with a single violin. One of the coolest things about his videos? He shows you how he puts each track together piece-by-piece!

At his followers’ requests, Joel has covered artists like Lana Del Rey, Billie Eilish, and The Weeknd. In the comments section, many fans have suggested that his compositions would be perfect for Netflix’s Bridgerton, which often uses string versions of well-known tunes. We’d love to see this young musician’s re-imagined pop songs on the show! In the meantime, you can find Joel’s music on Spotify, Apple Music, and more.
