AbsolutePlaylist: "Summation: My Journey Through Music" by...

Posted by - 10:51 AM on 04/25/14
Today we're bringing you a very special edition of AbsolutePlaylist featuring the one and only Kenny Vasoli. You've seen his music transform from the days of The Starting Line, to Person L, and now to the "nu-hula" Vacationer, who will be releasing sophomore album, Relief on June 24th. Today we get the chance to travel into Kenny's musical inspirations. Check out Kenny's playlist, titled "Summation: My Journey Through Music" in the replies.
Here is a collection of tunes that encompass the journey my ears and mind have made through music. I did my best to sequence this playlist chronologically according to when in my life I obsessed over these artist/songs. It was an interesting retrospective putting this together. I hope you can enjoy the collection or, at least if you are a fan, identify how and why the music I make seems to change throughout my life. - Kenny Vasoli

There are some great bands on here. It's nice to see Face To Face on here. I just saw those guys live last year and they still can bring it.

This is awesome, Kenny is my go-to when discussing what musician has inspired me the most. Most of these are artists I would have expected to be on here, but there are some nice surprises. It's cool to see Dilla on this, thought Vanilla would have made the cut too though.
