We Are the World: 5 Of Our Favorite Foreign Artists!
armin foreign

Country’s recent post on The American Music Awards had us reflecting on some of our favorite musicians who were born outside the U.S. Here’s a list of the staff’s top choices for favorite foreign artists!

Techno & Dubstep’s Pick: Armin van Buuren

This was definitely a tough decision, but Dubstep and I decided to go with Dutch DJ Armin van Buuren because we happened to be in a trance mood. Van Buuren’s currently in the middle of a massive world tour. We can’t wait to see him when he comes Stateside!

Indie’s Pick: Tinariwen

I dare you to find a better group of Malian Tuareg musicians than Tinariwen. Actually, don’t waste your time, because that’s impossible.

Country’s Pick: Gord Bamford

After Bieber’s notorious flag incident, I wanted to take this opportunity to recognize another singer from our neighbor to the North that doesn’t give Canada a bad name. Gord took home five Canadian Country Music Awards this year, and they were all well deserved! Plus Gord is such a fantastic name, right?

Scene’s Pick: Asking Alexandria

I luv luv luv a band that makes awesome music and talks like they’re from Oliver Twist. Sometimes I wish I was British!

Metal’s Pick: Gorguts

Yeah, Gorgol is the obvious choice here, but I decided to go with Quebec’s Gorguts who earlier this year released their kick ass comeback album Colored Sun. Oh I how yearn for the day when Gorgol and Gorguts join forces and create GORGOLGUTS!!!

Who is your favorite non-U.S. artist? Let us know in the comments below!

    Probably Prince Whateverer from Britain. Or Vocal Score Pony (also British). Or Chieco Kawabe (Japanese). Or Matsushita Nao (Japanese again). Or Yui (you guessed it . . . Japanese). I CAN’T CHOOSE!
