    I don't think I ever had an inspirational band...it was mostly my general love for music!

    I can't really say one group or artist, for me early influences like The Smiths, Depeche Mode and The Cure.

    For me it is Kanye West. He made me want to get into music production as a hobby. Love the talent he exudes when laying down a track.

    I'm trying DAMN hard to sound like him. (That is, until I find my own voice.) This would help a lot! :-)

    Honestly I would say that producers like The Neptunes and J Dilla got men into beat making. Nujabes also had an impact on the style of beats I make.

    As far as wanting to make music there were several sources, electronic music pioneers like Wendy (Walter) Carlos and Beaver and Krauss (who also did the music for the Disneyland Electrical Parade). Another influence was all the Folk music I was exposed to as a kid (as well as opera through my dad listening to Mario Lanza at wall shaking levels). There's classical music that I learned to love through snippets used in Warner Bros cartoons. So I have to say that for me there's no 'one' person/and/composer that was my influence but all the various genre's of music I've been exposed to throughout my life. I'm told that as early as 1 year old I would sit in front of the tv and hum along to any music that was on.

    For actually playing music, I'd have to say it was Van Halen for me, as I was determined to learn the keyboard solo to "Jump" as well as some of the guitar riffs.

    For me it started when i was young. I heard a radio for the first time and i heard many sounds. They sounded beautiful, i wondered what it was, i later found out that those sounds were instruments and my dad showed me more music, but then people with amazing voices were singing with the beautiful instruments. Ever since then, I have been in love with music in strive to find more, and I also love creating music, I'm not good at it, but i try and love it. As for the band that got me listening I'm not sure, it was a group composition of instrumental masterpiece! My favorite group at the moment is one on youtube, called MegaInstrumental that remakes modern songs with just Instruments which is awesome. This is my taste, and everyone has their own.

    Thanks,

    The main reason i got into music in the first place was my dad, now make no mistake I'm not an artist nor can i play an instrument but i am an avid collector and listener of music. I believe it was around 1990 and i was at home trying to sneak and listen to an N.W.A album and my father caught me i thought i would get killed but he made a deal with me, he said ill let you listen as long as you listen to some of my music well i had to agree. He had me listening to Sam Cooke, Elton John, The Beatles some Marvin Gaye some Temptations even some Sinatra well even to this day i have about 60 gigs on iTunes and about 150 gigs of music on my hard drive. I have to say at the time I was not happy but soon enough when i actually started to listen to the lyrics i was hooked now today I listen to anything you can throw at me from Mozart to Pearl Jam. Its was a great lesson to learn and a lesson i try to pass along to my children now.
