Although Cincinnati does not take the cake for the most nationally and internationally successful musicians, there are a fair number of influential groups who have roots in the city. Some of Today’s favorites—Walk The Moon, Buffalo Killers, The National, Foxy Shazam—come from this city. 1950s artists such as R&B duo Calloway and ever-iconic Isley Brothers have called Cincinnati home, too. Clearly, Cincinnati is far from talentless, as its residents create some of the finest music around the United States.
