  • It’s a straight split between Coldplay, Mumford and Sons, and Michael Buble. But I’m gonna go with Michael Buble.

  • I switch back and forth between Buckethead and Between The Buried And Me.

    Buckethead is AMAZING live.

    Between The Buried And Me are as well.
    And their Thrashy/Super-Beautiful-Soft-Core transitions make me all hot and bothered.

    I grew up, and came to appreciate, lots of progressive / alternative rock. In the same sort of vein, great songwriters of the 80s really stuck with me while my parents were working with musicians and hanging out with them.

    An artist I always get back to when I feel like my love of music becoming stale or vapid or too bland is Gino Vanelli. He writes incredibly emotional music, stirring arrangements, has a great voice and surrounds himself with fantastic musicians. I think all in all, he really is my favorite.
