Default When you are sewing

What music do you listen too when you are working on your projects of love?

I always try to put something on while I'm sewing. It makes it all so much more enjoyable! I have a playlist downloaded that is made up of the following artists:
Alison Krauss and Union Station
Red Molly
Old Crow Medicine Show
Wood Brothers
Gillian Welch
Emmy Lou Harris
Wailin' Jennys
Doc Watson
Bill Monroe
(That's all that I can think of right now, but there's more.)

I also love putting on Pandora and listening to other genres s/a classical, Nora Jones, Christmas music, Grateful Dead, Jazz...the list goes on.

I stream Pandora in my sewing room. I have a station I've named "All Purpose Good Stuff" and I've tweaked it for so long it's an extremely eclectic mix of music from a pretty broad swath of genres. I look up songs I particularly like and it always seems that I only like the ONE song by that artist, so apparently I have a broad yet finicky taste in music. It's rare I buy a whole CD nowadays, I buy songs individually much more often.

My DH is a much bigger audiophile, I asked him what he would call "my type" of music. He says I mostly like "Instrumental Hip Hop", whatever that means. LOL

I don't usually listen to anything but the hum of my machine. It is music to my ears.

It depends on my mood. But I have to have some sort of "background" noise going while I am in there.

So it is either watching one of my programs or a dvd on the tv. Or I just plug my iPod into my Bose and listen to music.

It must be how my brain is wired.......Even while reading I need "background" noise to concentrate.
