With a lot of our favourite artists staying true to their roots, to their music and most importantly, to their fans, we take a look into if integrity is the integral part to music. Do you listen to an artist just for their music? Or do you listen to an artist on the way they portray themselves, being whole and undivided to us as avid listeners, fans and consumers?

It may be the very fact that makes us connect to the music more, or it may be a little extra something we like about them and their personality as a music artist. Either way, tell me your stories, your troubles and your artist favourites regarding integrity.

Thank you kindly.

    I listen to the music. I might not like their politics or eating habits, but ultimately it doesn’t matter what they look like or who they vote for. It’s the music, in and of itself. Just like writing versus the personality of the author. For me, the work speaks for itself.

      Yeah, spot on – the music speaks for itself! Irrespective if the artist is not likable, its the music we love and that’s all that matters. LOVE IT!

    If it’s a question of reinvention or creating the same music, I don’t have any problem with pushing musical boundaries. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. That’s the risk you take as a creator. Try everything and see what sticks. I don’t necessarily think having integrity Integrity means just recreating the same sound over and over.

    As for personalities of the artist, I don’t think it really matters. I watched an interview with Josh Homme once where the interviewer asked him about politics and including politics in his music. “It just isn’t what I do,” was his response. I thought that was perfect. As much as I’d like to think that the musicians who’s music I love so much are good people that share my thoughts on things, that isn’t always, or usually, the case. Nor should it really be that important. It’s their music that draws us to them not what they think about some public policy.
