I like to listen to mostly the band Skillet, with songs like "Forgiven", "Comatose", "Rebirthing", ect.
The band Mercy me has a song I like called "I Can Only Imagine."

I listen to a wide variety of Music and bands. Everything from the 60's-70's to 80 hair bands, to new Country. But most of my time that involves listening to Violon/Fiddle is Celtic music or just surfing youtube for Fiddle music. 

  On Youtube, I do a lot of watching of folks like Bowfire, Natalie McMasters, Escala, Sierra Noble, they are some of my favorites.

Mairead Nesbitt is my current favourite, Great Celtic music and pretty good on the eyes too at risk of sounding a smidge sexist!

"dazedRaining up" is a great album

I love trampled by turtles.  I was a metal head guitar player until last month so the song wait so long set me in motion.  i also like any of the bach or mozart stuff.

I like the band Skillet also, especially the songs "Comatose and "Awake and Alive".  Also, the band Red has a song called "Pieces" which is very good and has a lot of violin in it.  Love Casting Crowns too.

Skillet has to be my favorite band.  They played here in Atlanta last year and it was interesting to watch as they quoted a passage of scripture, showed how it applied to normal life, and then went right into one of their songs.  They are a truly inspired group.

I can't say that I've heard of Skillet.  I'll have to look them up, thanks!  cheers

 

I'm all over the place when it comes to listening!  Let's see.......

Time For Three, Lindsey Stirling, The Kronos Quartet, Bond, Escala, Circa Paleo, Taylor Davis, Doc & The Lady, Hillar Bergman, Mary Fahl, Ben Chan, Banjo Phil & Emily Greer, et. et. et.et.et.et.et.et.et.et. roflexactly

 

I find new artists and songs that I like every day!  Lately, I've been learning a lot of Civil War & Colonial era songs!  They have so much tradition behind them and are based on much older songs!
