We’ve been simply blessed with extraordinary fan messages from followers of @alternativeflute, an 18-year-old cover artist who plays alternative hits on the flute, and so we decided to check her page out and it is just as amazing as everyone is saying.
When we reached out to our followers for Instagram pages or artists that they love, the highest amount of messages that we received in our direct messages was for us to check out @alternativeflute.
The mastermind behind this page is Kailee, an 18-year-old “flutist, bassist and music lover” according to her IG page. Thanks to everyone who hit us up to draw her page to our attention, because everyone at the DBU office has been simply obsessed with everything she posts on her page.
First, we saw a Smashing Pumpkins cover, and we were sold, and then the further we went on a deep dive into her page, we saw so many more incredible covers from artists we love such as Panic! At the Disco and Fall Out Boy.
‘Today’ by The Smashing Pumpkins
We love that this exists and we want to share it with all of our friends, this is incredible.

Hey all! I've been having a few technical difficulties with making my multiple flute covers, so for the moment I'll be sticking with just single flute ones. Hope you still enjoy! This song is an absolute classic, and in fact I mainly associate it with being on Guitar Hero, a game I played quite a lot growing up 😉 ° ° #flute #flutist #flautist #fluteplayer #flutecover #fluteplaying #alternativerock #alternativeflute #music #musical #musician #alternative #rock #thesmashingpumpkins #smashingpumpkins #tsp #guitarhero #emo @smashingpumpkins
‘My Immortal’ by Evanescence
Okay but an Evanescence cover on the flute? With an entire quartet? Perfection does exist and it is this cover right here.
‘Pumped Up Kicks’ by Foster the People
Many covers of ‘Pumped Up Kicks’ have come and gone over time, but this one has to be our hands-down favourite. A close second would be this one HERE.
‘Sugar We’re Going Down’ by Fall Out Boy
Yes, yes, one thousand times yes. This one is a big fave amongst the office.
‘Feel Good Inc.’ by Gorillaz
The talent that this girl possesses is incredible, why haven’t the Gorillaz reached out? Someone turn this cover artist into a full-fledged band member.
‘All the Small Things’ by Blink-182
Just like ‘Pumped Up Kicks’, we’ve seen many covers of ‘All the Small Things’, and this one takes the cake. Also six panels? The talent jumped out.
