Music Monday 7th January 2019

You’ll know by now that I mostly listen to rock music and some metal.

That wasn’t always the case.

When I was younger, I listened to a lot of pop. I still have nothing against it, but I find that today’s pop market is so saturated with talent contest winners that there is no personality left; everything is too polished. I’m still happy to listen to older pop music.

Espen Lind is an artist who I find very undervalued and underrated. He has a beautiful voice, he can play a range of instruments, and he writes amazing songs with excellent lyrics. Let’s face it; he’s quite easy on the eye too. How he isn’t super successful and a global superstar is one of life’s great mysteries to me.
