    I love to listen to 70s, 80s, and 90s music while I doodle. But I like to listen to 2010s music when I'm coloring so that I get more energized. Earth, Wind, & Fire and Micheal Jackson are my top favorites.

    For years, my "go-to" music choice for drawing has been Beethoven's Cell and Piano music played Rostropovich and Richter on cello and piano respectively. During the Covid-19 "shelter in place" time, I have been tuning in to the daily streaming from the Metropolitan Opera in New York.

    I usually listens to whatever I like at the moment. That can range from old school country, to pop, and even musicals. Whatever I’m liking at the moment really.

    I usually listen to podcasts! 'Stuff You Should Know' is a great one. I get a lot of ideas for stuff to draw while I'm listening to podcasts. For music, the playlist I'm currently listening to obsessively includes stuff from The Dandy Warhols, The Breeders, Love and Rockets, Bad Brains, and Carpenter Brut.

    I like to listen to all of the sounds outside while I draw. I like to bring my sketchbook onto my back deck where I can hear the birds chirping and my younger siblings playing.

    Being a part-time musician, all kinds of music appeals to me. But in the studio Chillout music, Slow Jams, Smooth Jazz, Bossa Nova and Classical, mostly instrumental, music with lyrics can be distracting.

    I'm a huge 50s, 60s, 70s, and 80s fan. Elton John is my personal favorite, but the Beatles, Eric Clapton, Queen, and the Eagles are just a few others that I play a lot.

    Jeff Buckley inspired a couple of my pieces. I seem to get more creative when I listen to him. Same for really old music, like old blues, bluegrass and gospel played on scratchy records.

    I usually put on a k-pop playlist containing songs of my favorite bands: EXO, BTS, Blackpink, Twice, SuperM, GOT7, and Red Velvet. Sometimes I feel like listening to English songs. This playlist contains songs by Billie Eilish, Shawn Mendes, Selena Gomez etc.
