What does music mean to you?

To me, music literally provides the soundtrack to my life. There's not one moment when I'm awake that music isn't playing. When I'm at work, the radio is on. At home: iTunes. En route: iPhone. I cannot imagine my life without music.

I'm not picky with my tunes either. I like anything and everything. As long as it's good and I can relate to it. I prefer songs (i.e. with lyrics) to pure beats, which leads me to essentially debunk what I've just said...because I cannot, will not, abide 'house' or any of it's derivatives and sub-genres. It's crap and literally just noise. Urgh. Other than that, not fussed. I like everything from dubstep to grindcore, and grime to classical.

It is well known that I like to sing. And my singing repertoire is as extensive as the music I listen to. I don't sing because I have a good voice, or because I want people to compliment me or anything like that...I just genuinely love singing. It's such a good way to release emotions that are otherwise difficult to express. Sometimes I wonder if my life isn't actually just a musical from the 40's!

When asked the conundrum 'what would you rather be: deaf or blind?', aside from the obligatory 'neither', my answer is blind. This is based on the fact that if I were deaf I wouldn't be able to enjoy my life as much without music I think. Of course this is only hypothetical, and does not mean to say that I think blindness to be a trivial matter. It's just a demonstration of how much I feel music means to my life.

Recently, a friend has asked me if I want to start an acoustic project with him on guitar and me providing vocals. I love acoustic songs...they really catch the essence of the moment I think. So it was a no-brainer for me. Hell. Yes.

Anyways, the point is that when we get it up and running, I'll take some videos and pictures and post them on here for y'all to see. So watch this space! Thanks :)
