Despite the fact that folk music is a thriving community, I rarely found peers who shared my interests. Everyone my age liked pop, rock, rap, or country. I'm 29, I was born after the 70's. While there are bound to be examples of pop, rock, and country that I like, plus rap to a lesser extent, when I talk about my favorite artists all I get are blank stares or "who?".
Anyway, I thought I would share some of my favorites with Exisle, because I know there are at least a few people here who will likely enjoy them. And if I happen to convert any newbies, that would be cool too! Feel free to ask me any folk questions.
I'll start with Garnet Rogers, who's lyrics are currently quoted in my sig. I could listen to Garnet for hours on end (and I have ).
This is a song about remembering his late brother Stan, when they used to tour together.
Garnet Rogers - Night Drive - Listen Up
And some more favorites:
Garnet Rogers - All That Is
Garnet Rogers - Small Victory - Listen Up
I am also addicted to poetry in lyrics. I plan to start a new thread to share my favorite lyrics, in order to include those who may not share my taste in music but would still appreciate the poetry.
For other musical treats, see my thread in GMD: When Si Fi Actors Sing.
