The Music of My Life -------------------------------------------------------------------
 
 

Samples of the music I like (NOT complete songs):
(click on the song title to hear a brief 30-60 second clip of the song. Note: These files are in mp3 format. I'll try to rotate the samples with some of the latest that I've got a hold of, so check back every month or so to see what's new. :)  Please note: these mp3's are samples only. If u like any of the music, support the artist and buy their work! U can find online music stores further down this page. Cheers!

IF u like male vocal classical pop style music (e.g. the kind of music in musicals) then I would suggest u check out Josh Groban. This guy has a BEAUTIFUL voice. Visit his Official Website to learn more about him and sample all of his music. I have two samples of his music here as well: To Where You Are, You're Still You. If you like his music, please support this artist by buying his album.
