Many musicians, especially independent musicians, hate genres and their associated sub genres. We argue that we don’t want to be locked into categories; we are unclassifiable in our art. We defy categorization.
When we meet people and they ask us what kind of music we make, we tell them we can’t be labeled with any particular style. In fact, we have such disdain for these labels, we’re offended when anyone attempts to categorize our music, even if that listener or critic likes what she hears. Why is that?
Thanks to my friends at Below Zero – you can hear my song, “The Last Resort” on their podcast.
