My influences are many, and of various genres. These are some of my favourite artists, and bands:

 

 

sting

Sting- He is, in my opinion, the best songwriter there is! He’s really got it all: great melodies, fantastic songs, interesting voice, good musicians, and beautiful lyrics.

natasha

Natasha Bedingfield- Just love her attitude and voice! Not all the songs appeal to me, but those that do are really great. She’s original and I love the fact that she writes her own material.

freak

Freak Kitchen- Well, what can I say, heavy music rocks me and my favourite album is ”Dead Soul Men”. Love the way it’s heavy with good singing and interesting time signatures and I.A also manages to get his piont across in his lyrics.

harris

Emmylou Harris- This amazing woman with the amazing voice that’s like a good wine-it only gets better with time! You just emediately hear that it’s her and she just fills your ears with her raw, but still soothing voice. Get shivers down my spine. Me likes!

may

Imelda May- First time I heard her was on the Jools Holland show and her voice is just so cool! She is relatively unknown, but I’m sure she is well on the rise. If you haven’t heard her, just do. It’s rockabilly, and it’s damn good!

robyn

Robyn- This swedish songbird is played frequently when I need to boost my ”women can” factor! She’s cocky and she has reason to be. She has her own record label and produces her own aswell as other artists music. And ofcourse, she is good at it.

sarah

Sarah McLachlan- Whenever I need to just relax I put on ”Fumbling towards ecstasy”. She just takes me to that mellow place with her really soothing voice and beautiful melodies. And if you check her out on YouTube, you just fall in love. She has an amazing presence on stage.

    There are ofcourse many other bands and artists that I love, but these are on my toplist.
