Hey guys, for this week's blog I am going to be talking about my musical inspiration. With the recent death of prince I think we should acknowledge who we look up to because we don't know when anyone could pass away. My first musical inspiration is an artist named Chris Tomlin. My second musical inspiration would have to be Coldplay. And my final musical inspiration is Macklemore.
Chris Tomlin is a warship artist that has a lot of cool songs. In the beginning I heard his songs in church and loved them. I never knew who he was until I looked up his songs on YouTube. I found out that a lot of my favorite songs were actually written by a guy I have never heard of before. He has a wonderful voice and his songs are very complex in the writing. Chris’s music inspires me so much to write my own music and I love listening to it.
Coldplay has a wide variety of songs. They have some very complex planned out songs like viva la vida which are cool because they are very soothing to listen too. They also have songs like sky full of stars which I love because they are simple, easy to listen to, and have a great beat. In addition to that they have songs like Adventure Of A Lifetime which are more electronic. I also like Coldplay because their songs don't have bad meanings like most music these days. These are some of my favorite types of music so I love Coldplay. With all these different types of music it is easy to see that Coldplay is a very talented band.
Macklemore is by far my favorite rapper. He has really fun music and has a great beat. Can't hold us is one my favorite songs by him because I love the rapping and the chorus is also really fun to listen too. He also has songs like downtown which are fun because they have a story, and then the chorus is really cool and catchy. He also has other songs with stories like wings. I like songs with stories because you are taking your experiences and sharing them with the world.
In conclusion any artist that can produce music is very talented. These are my favorite musical inspirations. They all have great talent all in a unique way. There are other artist that I really like but I didn't include them in this list because they only had one really popular song. Prince was an amazing artist and it is important that we learn from old music because there is so much to learn.
