So, those of you that don't know my past listening influences I'd like to blow your mind. As of right now I would consider my sound to be similar to Jason Mraz, Jack Johnson, and Amos Lee. Those three musicians are also some of my favorite, but I haven't always enjoyed Singer/Songwriter or easy listening artists. In fact, when Dave Matthews just started getting big it took me a year to finally give in and start enjoying his music. Then as I learned the guitar Dave Matthews was one of my favorite musicians. As I was growing up most of my favorite music was heavy metal and hard rock. My first concert was White Zombie, and I believe my second was Ozzy Osbourne. If you were to look at my CD collection (which I still mostly have) from my early teenage years you would find, Metallica, Megadeth, White Zombie, Guns n' Roses, Rage Against the Machine, Ministry, NIN, Black Sabbath, Ozzy Osbourne, Alice in Chains etc. I suppose as teenagers mature, so do their tastes, but I still love all of the above music. I love listening to White Zombie's "Black Sunshine", Metallica's "One", NIN's "Head Like a Hole", etc. That heavy music became toned down and I began listening to Led Zeppelin, Cream, Creedence, Bob Marley, etc. But now ten years later I also love listening to Al Green, The Big Wu, String Cheese, Jack Johnson, Ben Harper, Phish, Pink Floyd, Vampire Weekend, Cake, etc. I also love various rap and r&b artists such as, Mos Def, The Roots, Gift of Gab, Lyrics Born, Gnarles Barkley, Lauren Hill, Wycleff, Jurassic 5, Blackaliscious, Beastie Boys, etc. I guess what I'm trying to say is, Metallica is a Jam Band, and Ozzy Osbourne is a Singer Songwriter and Wycleff is my homeboy.
