Music is my life blood. If music is playing somewhere, there is a piece of me which is listening to it. Bad music will motivate me to leave the room.
I prefer listening to quality music which is neglected by the mainstream commerical media outlets (aka Indie - although I hope this will one day be a misnomer). I enjoy music with an emphasis on melody and well written lyrics. A good artist should be able to employ versatility in all aspects of their work.
As an aspiring self taught musician, I have played piano for 26 years starting with a hand held casio keyboard - I have one in my possession which still works. I played trombone in middle school and enjoyed a seat in first chair for my school in the symphonic band as well as placing in top chairs in all honor and region band / orchestras. Given that Houston is such a large city, I consider this no small feat. I picked up guitar 3 years ago and it has reawakened my love of playing music.
