Do you listen to all types/Genre's of music?
Do you usually listen to artists that are similar to the kind of music you like?
Do you listen to only a certain type of music and then find similar new artists?
What do you look for in your taste of music?

I've voted in the second category, but I'm mid way between that and the first one.

I find that most of what I listen to comes 'out of Ireland', but it's not all the same genre - far from it in a few cases :D I don't set out to find new artists, but if I do I'm happy :)

I do listen to a lot of different styles of music, and always enjoy finding (one way or another) new artists that interest me (at that point in time at the least).

I may or may not always actively search for new artists, but usually it comes blowing my way :lol:

so, 2nd one for me too ;)

Love,
Phantas

I voted for option 3:
I listen to certain types/genre's of music only, and rarely go looking for new artists or new music of a similar genre/type

Often, a new artist will come my way after mentioning one of my favourites to a friend who then say, "Have you heard of <x>?"
That's how I discovered Moya's solo work, to be fair!

I'm also belonging to the second category of this poll, I think my musical taste covers mainly melodic and peaceful music because I am a tranquil person myself!!

I do listen to different kinds of music and I have some favourite artists and groups whose music I listen to most. Nevertheless, I always watch out for something new. :)

I'm in the same as you,though I've chosen the first. I'm not sticking to Celtic or Irish music so..:P

I voted for the first but I'm somewhat between one and two- i do love irish music and acoustic stuff, but whilst i like looking for that stuff i also listen to anything and everything that comes my way. I'd like to think im unprejudiced in my musical taste and will try everything at least once!

I listen to different types of music but I do have my favorites like celtic, new age and some pop. I'm not fond of country except for a couple of artists. I do like some classical as well.

I voted "I listen to certain types/genre's of music only, and rarely go looking for new artists or new music of a similar genre/type!" but I would have to edit that a bit.... It's not certain types of music so much as certain artist... I listen to Enya, Moya (of coruse), Josh Groban (bet ya didn't know that!!), Michael Bolton, Sting and Kylie Minogue.... I guess the only likeness you could say with most of them is that they are relaxing (well, Kylie's a bit more dance music).... but that's all I listen to.... Oh! I take that back... 2 of my newest favorites are a violinist named Lucia Micarelli (who is AMAZING!!! She plays like hard rock on the violin... no vocals except on one song) and a singer/songwriter named Zachary Provost.

I'm a person who fears chage for any reason at all so new music is a big no-no for me LOL

I read the choices and I went with "I listen to certain types/genres of music only, and rarely go looking for new artists or new music of a similar genre/type" because I really don't go looking for new artists, I stick with who I've listened to for years. :)

I like to search for new artist and music. But I don't search music in every possible genre. It's not only moya-like music I listen to

@Nigel: Nice banner and avatar you have. The picture you use as a banner is one of my favourites ever seen in a photoshoot :) I just love Sarah's 'harem' shoot :D

I voted for this one:I listen to all types of music and i usually find and investigate new artists very often!

I listen to anything I like, I don't care what genre it is (though I have some genres I usually don't like of course, like Country...>____>).
I often find new artists, mostly by accident. I don't go look for them intensively. I do prefer certain genres of course ^ ^ I guess I'm more the rocky type, but as I said, anything I like will do, no matter what genre it is =) And I love to share music, as some people might know 8D

The turn of the day, when all music fools come out to play until the drunk turn of night.
