About Music

My taste in music has evolved over the years.

I grew up listening to Peter, Paul, and Mary, the Beach Boys, Steely Dan, and Elton John. My Dad and my Mom loved music and would often play records on our turntable and I learned to love the music from generations past.

Music like this:

 If I had a Hammer by Peter, Paul, and Mary

Barbara Ann by the Beach Boys

Field of Gold by Sting

Then later on, I started to appreciate pop and RandB:


 You Got it Bad by Usher

I Know Where It's At  by All Saints


Say My Name by Destiny's Child

Now, I'm beginning to appreciate country and folk music. I don't know what it is about this kind of music that just touches my heart.


 Bless the Broken Road by Rascal Flatts

The House that Built Me by Miranda Lambert

Ho Hey by The Lumineers


But when you get music and words together, that can be a very powerful thing. - Brian Ferry
