When I found out that 13 Reasons Why star Dylan Minnette is in a band, I was shook. But it turns out, the actor isn't the only person from the Netflix series who's got serious musical game. Ross Butler, who plays Zach on the show (as well as Reggie on Riverdale), has posted a lot of Instagram videos of himself performing various hit songs. PopSugar first reported the Butler revelation.
Butler's videos include plenty of stripped-down covers of your favorite songs — think acoustic versions of Rihanna hits. Naturally, Butler plays the guitar in the Instagram videos, too.

And if his singing and guitar playing weren't enough, Butler is also a skilled pianist. For further proof, look no further than this video of him playing "I'll Make a Man Out of You" from the Mulan soundtrack.

I'm digging this piano rendition of Frank Sinatra's "Fly Me To The Moon."

Cotton Eyed Joe blues. Song randomly came on and thought the lyrics are kinda depressing... #blues #guitar

It's not all Sinatra on Butler's Instagram, though — his "Cotton Eye Joe" cover definitely isn't the Rednex version of the song.

This performance might give you a new appreciation for Santana & Rob Thomas' "Smooth."

This is a much different take on Outkast's "Roses" than the original version.

Had to do some Ke$ha. It was inevitable.

I'd like to think Mr. Worldwide himself would be a fan of Butler's cover of he and Kesha's song "Timber."

When the holiday season rolls around, Butler's moving performance of "The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire)" will be most appropriate.
