Along with writing, music is my life, pure and simple. When it comes to music, like I said, I have eclectic tastes, much like my dad. I can and will listen to everything and anything, even some country and hip-hop/R&B. I have so many favorites songs/bands/singers/albums, I can’t even start naming names. So here are some bullet points: one of my favorite bands of all time is Queen; one of my favorite male singers of all time is John Lennon; and one of my favorite female singers of all time is Neko Case.
