I listen to Pandora a lot more in recent years and, perhaps unsurprisingly, the stations I create based on the music I like often spits out a lot of new music that I like.
Pandora is the reason I discovered the Canadian folk trio the Wailin’ Jennys, who I’d never have hear of from other avenues. Also EDM violinist Lindsey Stirling. Anybody else people randomly discovered through online radio?
So it was random but definately a pleasant surprise but one day I was listening to the Bon Jovi Channel/station (no surpirse there lol) and it plays Matt Dusk. Been a fan ever since.
It’s been so long since I last used Pandora… but I remember discovering Jon McLaughlin and becoming a fan instantly. This was back when he was still signed to Island/Def Jam. I’ve been following his work ever since. Love his writing!
