Hi everyone. Was just browsing and came across this site. I'd been looking for a place to join discussion about my favourite artists and bands. I was on a couple of sites that had music discussion as part of them, but they were poorly moderated and there was a lot of personal attacks and that sort of thing.
I've had a love of music since a fairly early age, and grew up with The Beatles and other British-invasion bands and artists. I'm from Britain (born there) and have lived in Canada since I was 12.
While not losing my love for traditional rock and roll, I have found over the last couple of decades, my tastes have strongly diversified. I now enjoy some Opera, a lot of New Age artists such as Australis, Paul Schwartz's Aria series, Enigma and others. I have a love for female voalists of many styles, such as Sarah McLachlin. Most recently I discovered, and have become a huge fan of, Julee Cruise, whom I cannot stop playing. In case no one knows her, she performed "Falling" and other songs on the soundtrack from Twin Peaks. She has this highly unusual style....a kind of 50s Avante-Garde sound that is very addicting.
Well, I hope to contribute to some of the ongoing discussions, or even some new ones.
