Any genre, it’s afterall all music. I don’t like to label or categorise them, it’s just… music.
As one gets old, there will no longer be favourite artistes, so as long as it’s palatable to my ears, anyone goes.
Life is definitely the main source of inspiration, music is another source of inspiration… ironically.
