hmm, it changed over the years quite a bit.
during my teens i listened nearly only to male artists. but then it started to change with montserrat caballe, shania twain, aimee mann, anastacia and the known suspects.
so i guess now its nearly 50-50, but a bit more male artists/singers still.

*Ressurects cool old topic*

Most of the bands I listen to are male, with a female lead vocalist. But for solo artists, only ever female artists. I do like a couple of all-male bands (Radiohead & The Pogues), but usually I don't like male singers as much, most all my CDs have girls singing.

Must admit, I'd never stopped to really think about this until now!

I've voted for "roughly the same", although I've probably got a bit more by female artists. If I'm honest, I just tend to buy whatever "floats my boat" at the time!!!! :mrgreen:

I'm realizing I listen to primarily male dominated music (Muse, Tom Waits, Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, Pink Floyd, The 'Stones) with a tiny hint of the ladies (Cat Power, Regina Spektor, Bonnie Raitt).

Well, the bands I listen to have mostly female vocals. But bandmembers are most of them male.
The solo artists I listen to are always female.

Moya is the only female artist I listen to. As far as male artist would be Disturbed, Drowning Pool, Linkin Park, Rob Zombie, AC/DC etc.. Mostly due to being a U.S. Marine and the divorce about 4 years ago. I really don't care for any of the U.S. female artist except for one and I cannot remember the bands name.

I know they are a little rough around the edges but as a marine you are drawn to this type of music.

^ Oh, you have a good taste in music for what I can see of those bands. I *love* Disturbed! David's voice is so great. Have you heard Iniside The Fire yet (I'm sure you have =P), I love that song, but I don't like the video xD.

Eternal_Silence,

Belive it or not.I haven't had the chance to get his latest CD. The latest of his work I have is the TransFormers sound track with "This Moment". That is a good song and Linkin Parks "What I've Done" is another good one I listen to. Disturbed and Drowning Pool helped me through some rough times.

I figured every one here probably listens to classic rock or classical music. I'm glad to see I am not alone here in my taste. I'm not sure if you have heard Moya's "Tell Me Now (What You See)" from the King Arthur sound track. That one brings tears to my eyes everytime I hear it and I do not cry at all.

Thank You..You made me feel better.

^Ohh, I haven't listened to Disturbed's latest stuff much as well, I didn't know they had new stuff until 2 weeks ago or something =P. I still have to search for the rest. I used to like Linkin Park a lot, I'm not a big fan of their latest stuff. Drowning Pool is awesome too, but I like Disturbed most.

You're definitely not alone in your taste here, people on here generally have a broad taste in music ;).
I just like a lot of metal and rock bands, I listen to a lot like that, but also to all sorts of other music. I nearly saw Disturbed live last time they were in Holland, but I missed them =(. I did see Metallica a month ago though =D
Glad to know I made you feel better :).

For me, it's mostly female. But as someone said earlier, many instrumentalists are male while the singers are female. But there are one or two exceptions.

Although I don't own any Josh Groban albums, he does have quite a good voice and the one or two tracks I have heard of his, I quite like.

Then there's the New Age duo Secret Garden. A man and a woman - both of their voices work really well in their songs.

My latest album is a double CD, a live Christian worship album by Stuart Townend but his voice is quite prominent on it.

In general, I find the female voice easier on the ears.

Eternal_Silence,

Yes! Disturbed is the best when I get fired up. They produced Indestructible and it is in stores here in the U.S.. I just haven't had the time to buy it. The private security job takes all of my time. I should be sleeping right now but I take some of it to post here. There are songs on sound tracks that don't end up on thier albums. I usually try to hunt them down as well. I also listen to Nickel Back, Foo Fighters and Nine Inch Nails but not as much though. Nine Inch Nails only have a few good songs but the rest is a little too weird for me. I put together all the best (mostly Disturbed) then crank it up and hop on my four wheeler and let the dirt fly! : )


Angoid,

I haven't heard of Josh Groban or Secret Garden but I have heard of Stuart Townend before. Living in the Bible Belt there's very little Christan music that slips by. I belive my Mother has some of his work. I'll have to check.

I tend to stay far away from any down to earth music besides Moya and Clannad. I work out to stay fit and listening to rock like Disturbed etc.to get the blood pumping and use anger to push myself farther. I'm no mound of muscle but I keep my size at an advantage.

Hmm, this is an interesting topic! I actually was thinking about this the other day. I would say I listen to more female soloists than male soloists, but when you include bands, it would make it nearly even.

Actually, though female singers are still a majority on my I-pod, I am listening to more male singers lately...
