Lately I'm really digging on Hans Zimmer and am working on an arrangement of "Time" from the Inception soundtrack that'll use piano, bass, maybe a baritone and a couple other guitars.

Yep, long running post trains are like that.

My current inspirations are all over the place. I think it would be hard to mention any artists in particular, but I've been listening to a lot of music from the circles Sound Holic, A-One, and Alstroemeria.
Amy Grant. 8-)
I can see already that Hans Zimmer has been already mentioned several times, so I'll try to add something new from my list... :D
Karl Jenkins as I grew up listening to his music and recent inspiration - Daniel Pemberton, as I was really inspired by his work in Legend of the sword (even though the movie was awful).
