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.
