    You are a pioneer of music in Skyrim and have just started your own record label.  It is your job to put together the biggest act Skyrim has seen since Pantea Ateia!  The most talented bard in all of Skyrim?  No? Well then.  Ahem.  

    You need to form a hit band and market them well!  Any NPC that appears in Skyrim can join.    

    Who are the members and what are their positions?

    What is the name of the band?

    What is the genre?

    What is the name of their first single?

    Might want to stick a 'Parental Advisory" label on that one 

    By the way Mr Mirric, Record Executive, what is the "Daedric" genre?  How does it sound?  What audience will it appeal to?

    The Daedric genre of music appeals mostly to Daedra worshippers it sounds like death metal music but even more daedric

    I'm disturbed by the notion of actual music...or any sound, really...coming out of the Headless Horseman's neck.

    But that's why he has to be on vocals! If there is any sound that comes out all all, I feel like he's obviously the clear choice.

    He'll about as easy to understand as any other death metal vocalist, so it works out well.

    I really hope this lineup makes bank with their first single, because I see them imploding down the line! Who writes the songs?

    I've never heard of Blues with war drums and howling, but I admit, I am intrigued.  Put me down for one copy.

    Band Name: Gotta' Wub Magic

    Members: Savos Aren, Morokei

    Genre: Hardstep

    First Single: Party with Eldritch Powers

    Just imgine it, they could use sound manipulation magic to make a beat and add drops! And combined with Morokei's deep voice, they could remix that and make some very nice (probably enchanted) music!

    Yes! And its melancholy howling. More like an A-WOOOoooo my life sucks...kinda howling.

    Thanks, I'm starting to think that it might work better as hidden track.
