Paul Lamere at MusicMachinery.com took on the extraordinary task that explores locations and distinct music preferences, with results that might surprise you.
Distinctive artists by state (musicmachinery.com)

Distinctive artists by state (musicmachinery.com)

 

Lamere says he sampled listening preferences of about a quarter million listeners that have a zip code associated with their streaming music account.  Listener data is drawn from a variety of music streaming services that are powered by The Echo Nest.

He aggregated the listeners into regions (state, regional and all-US) and compared regions by looking at the top-N most popular artists based on listener plays in each region.  He then sought the artists that have a substantial change in rank between regions. These artists are the artists that define the taste for the region.

For more in-depth analysis and comparisons, see Lamere’s original post at MusicMachinery.com.
