I am very much a guy of my parents' raising. As a kid I tended to listen to what they listened to. So I consider myself as much a fan of the '70s and '80s rockers along with the best of them. Lately, however, I have been listening to a lot of new music. Music that's new to me, anyway. Then I wondered what music other people on our team were listening to, so I asked them. We also asked our followers on Facebook and Twitter what they're currently listening to. The following are just some of the artists the TN Team and our followers currently have on their playlists.
Mike: "I've been listening to experimental rock group Ellis Ashbrook and funk/soul singer Anduze, as well as post-rock group Mogwai. I've also been listening to a lot of soundtracks, from shows and movies as diverse as Doctor Who to Inception to some older movies such as The Truman Show. I think Murray Gold, Hans Zimmer, and Phillip Glass are masters at what they do."
Erin: "Here's my list (in no particular order): Nicki Minaj, Lady Gaga, Bruno Mars, Katy Perry, Gym Class Heroes, LMFAO, Taylor Swift, The Band Perry, Rihanna, Britney Spears."
Danielle: "I've been listening to several artists recently. I prefer to mix up my playlists. I really like Laura Gibson's voice, she is very calming. I also enjoy The Bird and The Bee- they're upbeat and fun! No matter what, though, Florence and the Machine is always on my playlist; I can't get enough of their unique sound. Occasionally I like to sprinkle in Adele, Chris Thile, Elliot Smith, and Camera Obscura."
Liz: "Billy Joel, Glee cast, Sara Bareilles, Lily Allen"
David: "I'm listening to Blues Saraceno, Jason Becker, Return to Forever, Kiko Loureiro, Neil Zaza, Armik and the last album of Yes, Fly from Here."
Audrey: "It's always changing, but always the standards from the 40's, oldies from the 50's, recently Leslie Gore----"You Don't Own Me," "It's My Party," Juanes, one of my all-time favorite singers, and Italian Art Songs from the 18th-20th Century. Oh and Christina Perri---love her music!"
Leigh: "Carrie Underwood, American idols"
Michele: "My Chemical Romance, Alter Bridge, Black Stone Cherry, Hinder, Shinedown...."
Kyle: "Black Keys, NOVA, Arctic Monkeys, Cold War Kids, Grouplove, Young the Giant, Naked and Famous, Wolf Gang."
Tracy: "Adele, Pink, The Joy Formidable, Jen Leigh (awesome guitarist and from CT originally), Neo Trees, OneRepublic"
Alison: "Still listening to NKOTB!"
