Best new music you've heard lately?
DS: Jazmine Sullivan's album "Fearless." Good-for-the-soul kind of music.
If you could time travel back to any musical period, where would you go and why?
DS: I would time travel back to the Harlem Renaissance during the 1920s so I could meet the greats like Duke Ellington, Ella Fitzgerald, Cab Calloway, and Billie Holiday, among many others. These people and the others of their era have set the stage for respectable, soulful music. They are each essential by providing a musical platform that has been the foundation for much of the music we listen to today.
Bands/musicans who have most influenced your musical taste?
DS: My musical taste has been most influenced by Mary J. Blige. I compare almost everything I listen to to Mary. Her voice and style of music is very compelling and puts me in touch with my emotional side every time I listen to any of her songs, whether it be the very first or 100th time!
