Influences- 

Everything I have ever listened to and liked has influenced me in a way, so I can’t really list all the
bands that have done so. I listen to good stuff from any genre, but most of what I listen to could be 
described as "rock." Really narrows it down eh?  But I can say that ever since I bought their album, Kid
A, Radiohead has been my favourite band. So I guess you could say that’s where a good portion of my
influence comes from. But anywho, here is a partial list of bands/singers that have had some sort of 
influence on me. Some of them I don't even know that well, but they might have a few songs that have 
had a big influence on me-

While my songwriting comes from too many influences to list, I can be a bit more specific about who I 
try and sound like with my voice. So here is that list-

1)	Jeff Buckley – Absolutely my favourite voice in rock 
2)	Nick Drake – King of mellow 
3)	Thom Yorke (Radiohead) – Bizarre yet beautiful 
4)	Chris Martin (Coldplay) – A little like Thom’s, only safer
5)	Beck – Not too many low voices in rock, so he’s kind of a hero in that respect
6)	Chris Cornell (Audioslave, Soundgarden) – King of the grunge voices

Back to music.
