Artist you now like that you discovered through your streaming service
I have listened to more music and have discovered many new (to Me) artists since I started using Tidal - that is what I enjoy most about streaming.
Here are of few I probably wouldn’t have found otherwise.
Alex Skolnick Trio - Electric Jazz Guitar Aaron Parks - Jazz Piano & Fusion Beth Hart - Blues Vocals Imelda May - Blues Vocals Bugge Wesselt - Contemporary Jazz from Norway Christian McBridge - Contemporary Jazz Bass Kat Edmonson - Jazz / Pop Vocals Joey Alexander - Contemporary Jazz Piano Khruangbin - Instrumental Music - hard to describe Michael Kiwanuka - Soulful Singer Song Writer Til Bronner - Contemporary Jazz Trumpet
I listen, almost religiously, every week to the Discover Weekly playlist that Spotify pushes to me. I've probably discovered 100 artist that I would not have otherwise heard (except maybe on Radio Paradise). Here are a few of my discoveries:
The Belfast Cowboys Motel Mirrors Jonathan Richman Silver Jews The Hold Steady Smog Clem Snide Alejandro Escovedo The Feelies The Suitcase Junket Jellyfish Patto The Glands Kyle Craft Quiet Life Black Rebel Motorcycle Club Conor Oberst Cass McCombs Rhett Miller Guadalcanal Diary Grandaddy
Great thread, as one of the many hold outs of streaming my music, I have never had the onvies (Cajun word for the wants) to do so and have and will always favor my music in physical format of CD and albums. With all that said, I retired 7 years ago and my habits change, with that my sources for new music and artist have kind of disappeared, at this point I need to get that new stuff back in my life and streaming seems like the answer. Thanks for bringing it up. Enjoy the music
Thanks everyone for sharing new finds...I couldn’t agree anymore. Streaming has opened up a doorway to many more musician that were previously unknown to me. Keep them coming....I will post some of my finds this weekend.
@tooblue, thanks for keeping an open mind. Like you, I still listen to lot of CD’s but also enjoy the convenience of accessing infinite music albums and artists through the Qobuz app.
Radio Paradise is my all day daily driver. Heard so much good music unbelievable. I have purchased nearly 20 CDs since listening to RP. Tooblue, Radio Paradise is a great place to start, it is free, on your computer or smart phone. I like RP because it is real people putting the tunes out, and, it has a ’play something different’, if a song annoys. Flac is also available. I use the headphone out to my pre. They play everything from Bob Wills to Greig and Ravel, no rap, tho. They used to be located in Paradise, CA. they moved to AZ prior to the town burning up. Oh, no adverts, except the rare donation drive for themselves. They also play very obscure, overlooked musicians and their music.

Monophonics !!! If you like the 60' 70's soul vibe check them out. The are super talented. They have a new CD called " It's Only Us " is great , " Sound of Sinning " is the best CD I've bought in a while. " In your brain" and "Mirrors" are excellent too.
