"Elliott Smith is without a doubt the musician that has influenced me the most. I was 13 when I started listening to "Either/Or" & it didn't take long before the obsession was in full bloom. I wanted to find out what his inspirations was which introduced me to genres that I never would have listened to otherwise at such a young age. "Either/Or" has since then been a trusty companion in my life helping me through tough times & being a gorgeous lo-fi ethereal soundtrack to the good ones. The day "Either/Or" entered my life was the day I stopped feeling alone. That's how powerful music can be." - @mionyl

Chris Cornell was one of the influential originators of the 1990s Seattle grunge scene. A two-time GRAMMY Award winner, Chris’ dynamic stage presence and impressive vocal range made him a true rock-and-roll icon. From the international success he achieved as the founder and lead vocalist of Soundgarden, to fronting the GRAMMY-nominated supergroup, Audioslave, Chris’ extraordinary talent will forever live on and inspire fellow musicians and fans worldwide. We have lost an innovative member of our creative community, and our sincerest condolences go out to Chris’ family, friends, collaborators, and all who have been impacted by his outstanding artistry.

“It has been one of the most influential records ever to me. Which is saying a lot because that album just came out in 2015 and I’ve only been listening to it for one year. That album was with me through so much. It was with me through my fear of flying; it was with me through reading Harry Potter, which is crazy because now when I think of Harry Potter I think of the scenes. I literally hear these songs over and over in my mind. It might sound hella neardy, but I love to listen to the same thing over and over and over. It just inspires me, listening to these songs, everything he is talking about, the sonics, and the vibe has also inspired me to now pick up the piano, let loose, sing, and learn. There is just something about that album. The way he created it, in a little room, he produced it, and it all came from his mind with a few of his friends and producers. It’s what I really aspire to be as an artist, as a creative, and I feel that I’m doing that. We can talk about so many records that have inspired me, but that album was there in a time and place when I was at my lowest that I’ve ever been and it was there to see me at my highest point to date.” - @Logic301 on why ‘What For?’ by @toroymoi is part of his collection.
