Do I sound like John Denver?


#1

Just curious. Some people say I sound just like him. It used to bother me because I wanted to be original. But now I realize no one is original anyway, so I accept it. What do Y’all think?


#2

No


#3

Do I sound bad, though ? I think I have a decent voice.


#4

You don’t sound bad at all, but you don’t sound like John Denver.


#5

I think you’re singing is quite good. I’m taking a guess here. But, I think folks might get a John Denver vibe because you’re image seems rather wholesome & you’re songs are on the positive side. That’s not a bad thing. At least that’s where I see & hear the John Denver similarities. Dude, just go with it!! I probably have almost every John Denver album. I was exposed to all kinds of music as a young kid in the 70’s. The Beatles, Johnny Cash, Elvis, Willie Nelson, John Denver, The Chipmunks. I’ve just always loved listening to music. All kinds of genres.


#6

This is why I’m hesitant to post too many videos of myself playing guitar and singing. You’ve ruined my experience playing music, Meade.


#7

Meade has a clearer voice than I do but he sounds too disconnected from reality. At least I have a familiar flat American voice similar to Conor Oberst so I think I’m more edgy but honest.


#8

Not bad. Do you cover any other tunes? How about Burning Down The House by Talking Heads? j/k I like Conor Oberst though.


#9

I did a Mountain Goats cover too. That’s all right now. I had some older covers from years ago but deleted them


#10

I think you sound like John Denver towards the end of his career… particularly the last five minutes of it


#11

I’m not familiar with The Mountain Goats. What album of theirs is the best one to start with? This board is a great place for new music recommendations. But, I guess that’s the main purpose of this board. Seriously, let me know. I’m always interested in finding good, new (to me) music. Thanks!!


#12

Start with The Sunset Tree


#13

Thanks!! I’ll be downloading it in just a few moments. I see that their discography is quite extensive. That’s cool. If I like them, I’ll have a lot of stuff to pick up & listen to. Thanks again!!


#14

I have 4 of their albums so far:

Sunset Tree (on vinyl)
We Shall All Be Healed
Tallahassee
Beat The Champ

They have a new album out in April titled In League With Dragons


#15

In League With Dragons, huh. In April. Hmmm…when the final season of Game of Thrones begins. Coincidence?


#16

Of course I also have vinyl and CD’s for sale!
