An it harm none, do as thou wilt, and do unto others as you would have them do unto you... the 2 most sacred laws in his eyes, Joe hopes to bring a bit of peace to the world via music, indeed, his motto "changing the world, 2 ears at a time" is a good summery of his goals.
I'm making that right now
I used to play live, but only in a small time cheesy little band, now however I am enjoying being a solo artist
I love music, I feel music, its a part of my life and miss it when its gone. I do like silence once in a while but being empathic, I can relate the songs on an emotional level.
That being said, I like music that can be felt, not just heard. I'm not talking about felt through the floor via sub woofers but felt through the soul via the heart
I don't care however for opera, gospel or gangster rap.
While opera and gospel can be very emotional, they can also be very annoying, gangster rap has no place anywhere near me. I hate things that hate, or things that portray it. I might listen to it IF its something tasteful, but I don't care to hear how some west side crackhead popped a cap in some east side pimps ass... its just not tasteful, sorry if you like this stuff, get anger management.
Any artist I consider to be my favorites are those that sing with the most passion. Jewel for example, she is pure passion wrapped in emotion hidden inside a beautiful mind. (if your reading this Jewel, my answer is Yes, in a heatbeat... you are inspiration to millions of people, Bless You, I love to be inspired :) Tori Amos, Evanescence, Loreena McKennitt (OMG now her music sets my soul on fire and grabs my heart and never lets go), Enya (ah again, pure passion), Aeone (I feel like I'm repeating myself) there are so many awsome artists and awsome songs.
Some of my favorite songs (there are WAY too many to list) in regards to artists I've not mentioned would be "Zoe Jane" by Staind, "Salisbury Hill" by Peter Gabriel, "Return to Innocence" by Enigma (well most everything by Enigma), as I said, there are too many to list. I will append to this as I have time.
I use a Yamaha PSR-E203 keyboard and Adobe Audition on a P4 @ 2.4 GHz cpu with 512 MB DDR ram computer running winXP
