Day 28: Favourite Bands or Musicians

If I listed all of my favourite bands and musicians, I think I’d be here for a few days. So, instead, I’m going to share a few of the bands or musicians I’ve been listening to a lot recently.

  • Imagine Dragons: If you want to feel like you live in a dystopian future or just want a catchy tune, this is your band! They also advocate for LGBTQA+ issues, which is a bonus.
  • Echosmith: I really like their music since it’s more acoustic and very soothing. Their songs remind me of long road trips and late summer nights.
  • Panic! At the Disco: This is one of the most recent bands I’ve gotten into. I’m really liking their new songs they just released, as well as some of their older stuff.
  • Peter Hollens: He’s my go to for doing covers of anything from folk songs to Wicked medleys. I usually throw his songs on when I’m studying since they’re pretty soothing.
  • Lindsey Stirling: The best way to describe her songs is a mix of classic violin and dubstep, which is really cool. She’s also a huge nerd, and has covered a lot of things like Lord of the Rings.
  • Ed Sheeran: If you want songs about love, he’s my go to musician. Plus he’s got other catchy songs like Barcelona that’ll always inspire a good mood.
  • Great Big Sea: I’ve adopted this band as I’ve been living out on the East Coast. If you’re ever in need of ceilidh music or need a pick me up, I recommend them.

If you want to see more of what I listen to or what I’m liking in terms of music, you can always check out my blog’s Spotify playlist here.

Day 6-What musician is most important to you?

Well, as usual, I couldn’t pick just one, so I picked my top three.

  1. Hedley: I love them because they are Canadian, it’s always nice to support someone from my country. I also like that they change up the genres of their music, and that most of the messages in their songs resonate with me.
  2.  Imagine Dragons: My sister got me into them, but I usually listen to them either as a pump up for the morning or just if I’m in a bad mood and need a pick me up.
  3.  Peter Hollens: I choose Peter Hollens as my third musician because he is a phenomenal singer, and puts all he can into his music. Plus, he does lots of covers of my favorite songs and theme songs from my favorite (nerdy) movies. If you guys want a cappella, go listen to his songs, he’s amazing.

I’m going to attach a short playlist with my favorite songs by each below, have a listen to them! Also, what are your favorite songs? Leave them in the comments!
