Anyone in the music industry knows the name Les Paul. He is considered the father of Music Technology because of his many inventions and innovations for the music world. He created the idea and ability to put layers of different sounds on top of each other. Having multiple tracks playing at one time is a skill we use in Music Technology everyday. Combining different sounds together and overlapping them is how we get many of the songs we listen to today. His ideas and inventions is the whole basis of Music Technology. Les Paul and Mary Ford created many popular songs which have influenced the type of music we have today. Without them, Music Technology and music in general would not be the same.
The country duo Florida Georgia Line has influenced my taste in music since the first time I listened to them. Their mainstream songs are very upbeat and happy and they just get me in such a bright mood. It brings back memories from summertime where everything is easy and relaxed. Their love songs always touch my heart and make me feel so happy and loved by everyone around me. All of their songs in general just speak to me in a way that other artists don't.
My cousin showed me the rapper G-Eazy when I was 13 and I've listened to him every since. His songs make me hyped up and inspired to get up and do something to be successful. Like any rapper, he talks a lot about money. But this always makes me want to go be active or just go do something to better myself and not just sit in my room. His more upbeat songs are my hype songs for games and important things that I need energy for. His songs always inspire me to do better and get ahead of my competition.
Carrie Underwood is one of my most listened to artists. The fact that she is a female being successful in a male dominated field is so inspiring to me. A few of her songs are about her learning how to be independent and getting rid of toxic characters in her life. Whenever I'm going through a tough time I listen to these songs. She also has slower love songs that make me all happy inside. All of her songs have messages or stories in them which I love about her. Her songs all have meanings that I can connect to.
