Music Taste: Mainly soul & funk both old & new, also quality house music, and listen to BBC radio 6 most days to keep up with all current alternative stuff. Can't wait to goto see the Stone Roses in June. Oh, and there's always loads of local stuff I love too! (But I would say that)
What I love about Music: Music is part of most people's lives and it touches everyone in many different ways. Personally, it makes me happy when I need it most, sometimes it helps me sleep and it makes me dance too, there are so many emotions and memories I have which are linked to music.

Name: Emma Howe
Title: Media Executive
Music Taste: I have a pretty eclectic taste in music but The Smiths, The Cure, Joy Division, Arcade Fire, Daft Punk, Aretha Franklin, Talking Head and The Beautiful South (of course).
What I love about music: I think music can touch people on different levels, but it always reaches people in one way or another. I love how a song or an album can reflect how you feel at a certain point in your life. Being incapable of listening to something until your fully over it or a song always reminding you of 'that time'. I think music is the perfect marker of all the important events in your life.
