...

I do interviews from time to time and I am always asked the same question: Who are you influenced by? An incredibly great question, however, I always feel like I never answer it correctly.  I seem to pick 1-3 artists or bands and come to a loss for words.  After every interview I can think of so many band and artists that have absolutely shaped me and could not possibly recognize them all in one sitting.  This blog is all about that.  I wanted to publicly document, praise and thank the following artists and bands that have been brave and excellent and have been a part of my development.  This may take awhile ;) Gonna do my best to put these in order from 5 years old to present;)

 

Madonna

Michael Jackson

Cyndi Lauper

Prince

Dolly Parton

Depeche Mode

Erasure

Glass Tiger

Phil Collins

Pat Benatar

The Go Go's

Belinda Carlisle

The Everly Brothers

New Order

U2

Aretha Franklin

Ludwig Van Beethoven

Frederic Chopin

Claude Debussy

Patty Griffin

Sarah McLachlan

 

I am tired...to be continued;)

    Hi Courtney ... I mean ... Ms. Chambers ... uhh-h-h, I mean Courtney ... ummm, anyway ... Been wanting to contact you for quite some time, now. But when I saw this AND you mentioned Freddy Chopin, I thought "he would've been almost as good a piano teacher as you were." Caleb still plays piano from time to time ... mostly for a Praise Team at church ... but he does occasionally sit down and play "Clocks", or "Wake Me When September Ends" or "Requiem for a Dream". He's a freshman in college now ... all 6-foot-1 of him. Thanks for keeping us on your blog list. Great to see what's keeping you busy. Still hope to run into you someday ... and watch you perform. All the Best -- ed & Carolyn
