Upon deciding what to write this week, I became inspired by thinking all of the people i’ve met at AU. Though American is not the most racially diverse place, it is pretty geographically diverse. I’ve met people here from Missouri to Hawaii to South Korea, and most of my friends are from vastly different places than I am. So i’ve decided to begin a series inspired by the music my friends grew up around and that shapes their music taste today. When I think of the music that I grew up with in Connecticut, a distinct sound doesn’t really come to mind. Other than the DIY music scene, Connecticut doesn’t really have a clear vibe or a city that could define a sound. Of course there are East Coast inspired artists but none specific to my area that dominate the vibes. So, it’s really fascinating to me when I hear about the music my friends listen to that does have regional significance.
