Hi there folks,
I recently got hold of a ticket to see Bruce Springsteen in Nowlan Park, Kilkenny this summer so it seemed fitting that I devote my blog post this week by talking about what an inspiration he is for me personally!
For those of you who don’t know, albeit virtually impossible, Springsteen is an American singer/songwriter who tour s with the E Street Band. Springsteen is a widely popular singer and is known for his unique take on heartland (70s) rock and beautiful poetic lyrics which have led the singer to sell over 120 million albums worldwide!
Springsteen has recorded 17 albums to date and has been the recipient of a myriad of awards including an astonishing 20 Grammy Awards, 2 Golden Globes and an Academy Award for his work.
While rock and roll seem to predominantly influence Springsteen’s style of music, he also draws musical influences from folk, blues and country.
Personally, I find his music very inspiring, words cannot begin to exemplify my love of this man’s music – from his exceptional guitar playing, amazing vocals to his powerful, emotive lyrics – Bruce Springsteen is really my all-time idol.
Here’s a link to one of my favourite Springsteen songs, which is a bonus track taken from his album “Magic” (2007).
