Feature & Follow #79

Feature and Follow is hosted by Parajunkee and  Allison Can Read.  This is a way to find other blogs and let others find you!  For more details click on the button above.

Question of the Week: Many readers/bloggers are also big music fans. Tell us about a few of your favorite bands/singers that we should listen to in 2012.

I have to admit that I do prefer reading to listening to music, but when I do listen to music it really depends on where I am and what I'm doing.   While exercising I listen to one kind, while driving another and of course I like to dance to another kind.  My tastes run the gamut from pop to heavy metal to Celtic.

I'm going to share two videos with you that will give an example of some of the music I like and illustrating how different my collection is.  

Loreena McKennett has been a favorite of mine practically forever.  She writes original music as well as taking old poems and setting them to music.  Her voice is magic.

Several years ago I went to the Festival of Fear in Canada and one of the parties that Rue Morgue Magazine threw featured the band Crud from Detroit.  The lead singer's scream opened the show and caught my attention.  Then their hard beat, catchy songs, in your face music and adrenaline powered show made me a fan.  If you like what you hear, you can like Crud on Facebook HERE.

Oh I definitely prefer reading to music. But when doing housework or exercise music is a must!
