I don’t consider myself as a big Michelle Branch fan, but I do talk about her a lot. She s one of the few music artists I’ve discovered as a young age. As a teenager, I listened to mostly country music, which meant I had little to no exposure to other genres. I was a late bloomer. Over the years, my music taste has shaped to what I can only call “oddly eclectic. I often talk about Michelle Branch on my blog, but there are others that remind me of my past in some way. It’s just fun to always mention Michelle Branch because no one I know would guess that I actually who she is. Actually, I’m kind of afraid to know what the people I know thought what kind of music I listened to when I was younger.
As with a lot of people, a lot of the music I listen to come from popular culture, specifically TV shows. I was never a die-hard fan of One Tree Hill, but I watched it from time to time. I was instantly moved by the theme song because it brought out the rebel in me. That, or I could relate to it. I can’t remember.
I don’t exactly know I came across Jack Johnson (not to be confused with actor Jake Johnson). It might have been from Pandora. It’s a very laid-back acoustic style that I’ve grown accustomed to. Very much like Michelle branch, he has more or less disappeared. Where have they all gone to? Seriously, they’re probably hiding in a farmhouse in Indiana.
I can already feel you judging me. Hey, I like Green Day. Sue me. I think I originally heard them in an old Disney Channel commercial in the mid-2000s. OK, you can punch me in the face now.
