Bands That Saved My Life

Maybe it's the emo kid in me talking here, but I truly believe we are shaped by the music we listen to. The most effective way to get my soul's attention is to talk music with me. I just love it when someone loves the same bands I do. A person's taste in music tells me more than words ever could. 


I'm writing this for a reason. People ask me almost daily about the bands I listen to, so I wanted to take a few minutes and mention some of the bands that make my soul sing. (Maybe one day my future wife will see this post & be like, "I like all of those bands. I should marry this man.")

Music is my escape, and these are the bands that saved my life. In no particular order, my favorite bands are:

Something Corporate, Brand New, Taking Back Sunday, Copeland, The Starting Line, Mayday Parade, Blink-182, Third Eye Blind, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Silverstein, Straylight Run, Cartel, Circa Survive, Saosin, Dashboard Confessional, The Used, The Early November, Underoath, The Format, Senses Fail, Valencia, The Rocket Summer, Yellowcard, A Day to Remember, and Band of Horses.

Those are just the first 25 that came to mind. There are plenty of others, but hopefully that paints a picture of my soul haha. If you ever want to connect beyond the surface, feel free to add me on Facebook, Insta, or send me songs on Spotify. I love that!

Much Love,
