    I always ask my 26 year daughter to give me some new music she likes for XMas. This year it was Leon Bridges, the 25 year old soul singer. His song 'Smooth Sailin'" is getting some airplay. Very nice and recommended.

    I love jazz, blues, rock, folk from years gone by. But I still enjoy discovering great new talent. Such as Justin Johnson...

    The thing is, I don't have and certainly haven't heard every rock record from the 60s and 70s so when I acquire most of this stuff, it IS fresh to ME. I realize there is a lot of good new music out there, but I'm not done with the classic stuff yet.

    I can understand where you're coming from as my preferences seem to somewhat mirror yours, but I could never not give new music or artists a chance. I don't aggressively pursue new music, but when I do it's a joy to discover something fresh.

My enjoyment of music is constantly evolving and even my tastes have changed over the years. Grew up in the rural south and it was classical or 70s rock for the the most part. Went away to college I expanded a bit into Austin's eclectic mix of the 80s. Grad school brought the Ramones and CBGBs into the mix. Relatively recently I have done more than the usual surface dive into jazz.

    i can't ever see siting down with the same music day after day and not evolving.

    Great thread idea Beaur. Here are a few newish things I like:

    Opeth- I backed into them through Damnation, and now have gone backwards toward their earlier, heavy stuff.
    Steve Wilson - Porcupine Tree and other bands- he is a mad professor of new prog
    Trixie Whitley- Albert Porter turned me on to Black Dub, and Trixie figured prominently in that band- produced by Daniel Lanois--she had a baby recently, don't know what she is up to, but for those here who like killer recordings, buy Trixie's 45 EP of "I'd Rather Go Blind" from Belgium--not the EP with that track among several others, but the EP with only that track. You'll thank me. And the original Black Dub album is worth owning - it has now reissued, I haven't heard that one, the earlier copies were, I think more discs, can't remember.
    Ken G turned me on to Wolf People -their new album Ruins is like a trip back to my sweet spot- UK circa 1969-70, but these dudes are from Sweden. They summon the old heavier rock/psych/folk thing, it is on vinyl and cheap.
    PS: Corrected name of thread starter. Also, my choices aren't under 30 but they are still relatively young, musically.

    One of my favourite new(ish) bands is Half Moon Run. They're an indie rock/folk band and use a lot of percussion.

    started a topic Young Talent

    Young Talent

    The recent focus in the world of audio has been on those we have lost. I'd like to try and focus on what's new and who could possibly become the next generation's stars. We can't keep buying reissues of the same old people, can we?? What I am going to do is list my favorite young (under 30) artists (I hate using "best" for lists like this) that I've either seen or watched (TV or web) perform live. Selfishly, with these types of lists, I am looking for other favorites that I don't know about!!

    Rock/Pop

    Ella Henderson - mix of old and new. If she keeps her head on she will go far
    Emeli Sande - Power, grace and emotion. She has it all
    Miley Cyrus - Focus on her music like the backyard session and stay away from her rebellious phase.
    Aurora - Love voices like hers.
    Rebecca Ferguson - my favorite for long term potential!

    Jazz

    Gregory Porter - already a force. Love his tone.
    Miz Elizabeth - If you haven't seen the Hot Sardines and love upbeat jazz you are missing something.
    Cecile McLorn Savant - old school meets modern music.
    Mary Halvorson - Lone "musician" on this list. She can play!!
    Esperanza Spaulding - When I first saw her she didn't utter a word. When next, she sang I was smitten.

    Classical/Opera

    Don't even want to list the young talent show phenoms as I can't imagine what they are doing to their voices long term so I give you these three who have all performed for major companies;

    Maria Agresta - Have to have an italian!! Power and control.
    Merideth Arwady - as was said "extraordinary instrument"
    Sasha Cooke - versatile and beautiful tone.
    Laquita Mitchell - Can't wait for her to grow into that voice. She has the chops!


    Now show me yours.
