Daily Prompt: Papa Love Mambo

What sort of music was played in your house when you were growing up? What effect, (if any) did it have on your musical tastes?

Well, apologies for another couple of days without a post, however I’m still hoping to get some emails from people who would like to do some guest blogging! Once again, if you’re interested in doing some writing on this blog, have a look at my Guest Blogging page – I’d love to hear from you!

Perhaps to many of my followers’ surprise, I hardly ever listened to classical music when I was small. Being brought up by my mother, we always used to listen to Simon and Garfunkel in the car, country music was also another favourite of mine. My taste in classical and indeed heavier alternative rock (something I haven’t really discussed on my blog) developed in my later years at primary school.

At home I still listen to a lot of this older music that I listened to in my early years, much of which I can play now that I’ve had extensive musical training. It influences a lot of stuff that I do. I’m in a band with three others – I play bass guitar – and when we’re writing songs my influences within them are very distinctly “country” sounds.

It was my birthday yesterday (whoop!) so I have to depart for a birthday meal at a restaurant with family. I hope you have a nice evening!
