Hey there, my name is Linnea Davis, thank you for checking out my blog. Let me start off by saying that you’re listening to Rebel Rebel by trailblazer David Bowie. I hope while you’re here you are able to find some music that interests you as well as share your own unique music story with me.
My love of music started before I was even born (I was probably conceived to a Mariah Carey album). Both my parents are huge music lovers and they have been a big influence on me. I grew up listening to what we’d now call “oldies”. My parents listened to a wide variety of music such as the BeeGees, Elvis, Barry Manilow, Michael Jackson and so on. I first realized that I really liked rock music when I first saw the classic Jack Black movie, School of Rock. The soundtrack featured bands like Ramones, The Doors, Led Zepplin, AC/DC and icons like David Bowie and Stevie Nicks. This was the first time I had ever really listened to this kind of music and I instantly fell in love and downloaded the official School of Rock soundtrack.
After getting into rock I went through an emo phase (come on, which millennial didn’t, honestly). I was completely obsessed with the Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, Panic! At the Disco and My Chemical Romance. As I transitioned into high school my favourite bands became Fall Out Boy, Hedley and Paramore. Anthems like “That’s What You Get” ran my high school career.
Post-secondary school became the birth of the Drake and the Weeknd era. I am in college now and I am still obsessed with these two RnB artists, but I still hold a soft spot for my roots and often find myself listening to Marvin Gaye’s “I Heard It Through The Grapevine” which is coincidentally on my Pre-Game Jams playlist.
As a 5th year varsity athlete, avid gym goer and a 3rd year Niagara College student, I am always on the go. Whether my day is going good or bad, I often use music to get me through.
You can find me in the most random places, (usually somewhere public, where I can embarrass myself in front of people I don’t know), dancing by myself and humming a tune that I think is a song, but is actually made up.
Thanks for reading!
