It’s a ‘B’ Serenade Kind of Day for Billy Moran’s Second StageIt Concert!


It’s been just over a month since Louden Swain’s Billy Moran took to StageIt for his first virtual solo performance, which was an absolute hit. Today, fans were treated to yet another Moran concert on the music streaming platform — the Saturday Mid-Morning Brunch Special. Today’s (loose) theme was the second letter of the alphabet, ‘B’, a nod to this being StageIt #2!

And because clearly we fans aren’t the only ones that are missing the beloved Saturday Night Special this year, Moran went all out with his hour-long performance — moody lighting, his epic wall of guitars, prerecorded tracks to round out the songs, and that signature Moran rock star stance. We’re henceforth calling this the Saturday Afternoon Delight, and we will not be taking any additional questions, thank you.

As promised, Moran’s show consisted of a mixture of Louden Swain and The Station Breaks tracks, some cover songs, and a brand new Billy Moran original.

  • “Free” by The Station Breaks
  • “Blackbird” by The Beatles
  • “Lost in the Light” by Bahamas
  • “Honey Bee” by Louden Swain
  • “Cool If I Come Over” by Louden Swain

Suddenly, mid-performance, an ominous message flashed across the screen … (which felt ironic, considering the opening of his first StageIt). And in what will now go down as the best bit by one of our favorite duos, the man, the myth, the legend — Richard Speight, Jr. — happened to be on the other line, masquerading as tech support.

Speight and Moran teased a song collaboration (which we revealed earlier this month here) between the two of them, which we unfortunately didn’t get to hear today but will hopefully be revealed soon enough!

Moran carried on with a few more tracks after that…

  • “Hallelujah” by Leonard Cohen (Jason Manns is so proud)
  • “Broken Fool” by Billy Moran (feat. his new guitar, Baby!)
  • “Help You” by Louden Swain (we’ll be patiently waiting for the much-needed studio recording of this, thank you)

Before finally finishing up with a beautiful rendition of “Beyond” by Leon Bridges.

We’d absolutely be lying if we said that we made it through the show without tissues, and we can only hope that this won’t be the last StageIt performance that we see from him! Billy, we’re so proud to see your continued growth showcasing your dedication to your craft and your skills as a solo artist!

Lindsey joined the Nerds and Beyond team in 2018. If she's not writing or out and about with her camera, she's probably watching anime, nerding out over Star Wars, reading manga, and definitely forgetting to water her plants. And waiting for the Genshin loading screen to pop up. Contact:
