I would guess either Garren or Kurt did the guitar. I didn't like that Cry Me A River cover at all though. I liked the live versions he's done but that was just meh. Sounded like he was all over the place.

Edit - I think it probably is Zach.

I know it isn't Kurt - still waiting to hear from Zach.

There's something seriously off about the arrangement of the Cry Me a River cover. So cluttered...

Criticisms aside, I don't understand how Jonny Craig can still headline shows. He's a great vocal talent, but from what I've seen on Youtube his shows are not good.

It's like he's forgotten why he got popular in the first place. Him in DGD was something different, now this is just him doing bad covers of good songs. I could hunt youtube for better covers than this.
While I wouldn't say these are offensively bad I 100% agree with your first point. Him in DGD was like something I never heard and the power he displays in that first Emarosa album still gives me chills. The problem with this R&B stuff is he doesn't hit those big throaty inspirational choruses like "Lemon Meringue Tie", "Heads or Tails Real or Not", etc.

Well that and there are a million decent R&B singers singing about bottles and models. He had a niche, a defining and interesting approach and he's blowing it by just becoming one of the crowd.

I've been wanting to catch a Kurt Travis set for a while now -- I think this is the first time he's done a solo show in my area. Just kinda bummed that it's at the South By So What festival.

Unlike a lot of people, I do like JC's solo stuff. It's just simple pop & R&B stuff, bad lyrics but otherwise solid. Will have to check out the covers later, but I did like the ones he did on YouTube a year or two ago.

first two DGD albums were proper. Emarosa's self titled was proper. ALLB LP wasn't great. I think Jonny should add Kurt to Emarosa and then see what happens(if emarosa would let jonny back in)
