Hi Guys

I wasn't sure if this was the right place to do so, but I'd like to introduce myself and my list of favourite musicians.

Hello, I'm Michael from South Australia. I’m a Postgraduate student at my University where I am working on a thesis about the empowerment of women through music and magic. This thesis will involve a novel I am writing entitled Chords In The Storm and a critical exegesis on fantasy literature with a musical element, most notably The Spellsong Cycle novels by L.E Modesitt Jr., as well as a critical analysis of the life histories and music of a select group of musicians whose contribution to the empowerment of female rock artists has been revolutionary. Once I'm finished, I'm eager to find a career in music reviewing and writing articles about music for newspapers/magazines/online publications.

Here are my favourites in the music world:

"A war is coming, I've seen it in my dreams. Fires sweeping through the earth, bodies in the streets, cities turned to dust. Retaliation..."
