Write About A Band/Artist You Love - English Essay

Extracts from this document...


´╗┐Write about a Band / Artist you Love I have always liked music since I was young, but one of many bands I like, my favourite at the moment has to be Skillet; a Christian rock band. But even if you?re not religious, they are still an incredible band to listen to. By playing hard rock music and incorporating ?Christian? lyrics into their work really makes them stand apart from other groups in that industry. Skillet was formed in Memphis, Tennessee in 1996 and based in the United States. The band currently consists of: husband and wife John (lead vocals, bass) and Korey Cooper (rhythm guitar, keyboards, backing vocals); Jen Ledger (drums, vocals) ...read more.

With the combination of skilled musicians and quality sound engineering, they really put on a fantastic show that I would gladly re-live. Overall, due to the catchy beat, meaningful lyrics and original style, Skillet is my favourite band and one that I love. ...read more.
