Influential Musac?

Are you influenced at all by what you're listening to in your studio while you are crafting/beading/sewing?

As of late, I cannot get enough of Citizen Cope. I first heard a song played on So You Think You Can Dance and since then I have been listening to Citizen Cope radio non-stop on my Pandora playlist. Yes I admit, I'm a little bit addicted to this dancing show. And half the time, I enjoy watching it to learn about new and popular music. Our local radio stations are a bit less than what I hope for, always playing the same songs over and over, and I think that Indie music is my first choice. I mostly enjoy listening to cds.

Tonight I finally decided to sit down and burn a few of their albums for my car ride to Philadelphia.

I will make a very bold statement right now.

I have yet to hear a Citizen Cope song that I didn't like! They are all really funky, and catchy.

And I love the voice of the lead singer. Incredible!!

hubba hubba,
he's not bad to look at either!

I installed a little Citizen Cope playlist over there at the right. Have a listen! Let me know what you think! Feel free to let me know what you're listening to in your studios these days...


  1. Oh God Lori - I've been listening to him for 3-4 years! So glad you discovered him. He is awesome! Just ran to get my Clarence Greenwood CD to listen to some great music while I'm blogging.

    Safe travels...........

  2. Ooooh, I'm looking forward to hearing more of Citizen Cope this weekend! And meeting Beth tomorrow night :)

  3. Great voice! I really like the drum beat of his Sun's Gonna Rinse and Mr. Officer songs. I'll have to download his album on my Zune. I usually don't listen to the radio much either for the same reason.

    Here's my favs:
    Jack Johnson
    Regina Spektor
    Mirah (not Mariah Carey!!!)
    The Roots

    Have a great trip! I'm only like 4 hours away. Maybe I'll see you next year!

  4. I like quite a few of Citizen Cope's songs! My favorites are "Let the Drummer Kick That", "Sun's Gonna Rise" and "If There's Love". Thanks for sharing! I love all kinds of music but don't listen to much while I'm working, though. Don't know why. Heh, I guess I like it quite. lol! The last thing I downloaded for music was the soundtrack to the movie "Slumdog Millionaire" It's a GREAT soundtrack. Have you heard it?

  5. Nice! I love to hear new music! Thanks!

    i love listening to Hanne Hukkelberg right now while i work -she has the most beautiful ethereal voice.

  7. I stream The River out of Haverhill when I'm working. Alternative without headbanging :-)

    I don't usually catch who's actually singing, but it's stuff that I wouldn't have heard up here in the sticks for a year.

    And thumbs up on Jack Johnson. I also like Donovan Frankenreiter.

    OOh love those eyes. He's hot!
    Thanks for the tip, I hadn't heard of him. I'll add him to my Pandora. Pandora is awesome. I listen to all kinds of music. Safe journey & blissful bead shopping.

  9. That guy is STEAMY! I will have to check it out. I have an MP3 player but I have to admit that I rarely use it. Maybe I will have to start...Enjoy the day! Erin
