who is your favorite musician? why?
i'm curious to hear everyone's answer.
toys r sus
most influential singer/songwriters to my own music, + genius artists
billy corgan lmao drag me
hmm. Childish Gamino.
SADE IS THE GREATEST OF ALL TIME
Eminem. my infatuation with Eminem's music started way before i was aware of record sales, awards and another statistics. I heard the passion in Em's voice, the "IDGAF" attitude spoke volumes to me when i listened to his for the first time at 11, 12 probably. Getting a hold of his album as a teen was a mission back when cd stores where Parental Advisory sticker herbs.
yo straight up, Bruce Springsteen. i can listen to that man any time of day or night. behind that:
Such a hard question to answer lol i think it depends on what type of mood im in
I think patrick stickles from titus andronicus is an incredible songwriter.
There is so many legends though who i consider favorites
I think like str8 GUITAR playing has faded out heavy...there is this guy philip sayce who plays an old strat who is freakishly good...like up there with hendrix and stevie ray vaughan...everyone whould check out his live performance of "alchemy"
currently: Anderson .Paak
Each player I dig is excellent at creating space, texture, and colors with their arrangements.
-Jenny Lewis especially when paired with the rest of Rilo Kiley. I love the melodies she writes when those are paired against the guitars and drums in RK its magic to me.
i think i would also have to say Childish Gambino, though, through the years, its definitely changed
Right now, Kevin Parker of Tame Impala. He captures this genuine psychedelic sound that blends smooth 70s-style instrumentation (especially on their first two albums) with a masterful modern electronic style. Sound is just amazing to me.
@solomonk Paak definitely has the potential to be a classic of this generation. Kinda sounds like a Hip Hop Marvin Gaye
@Sol_EQ His swag is definitely based in musical proficiency; not some ethereal "it" factor. He's classic af.
