There have been times when I get ideas in my head for music styles and approaches to music and then I discover an artist who does what I had been thinking about and I feel like anything I try to do is just me copying them. Listening to them more actually makes me think I'll copy them. Any advice on what to do?

Listen to a wide variety of music and steal your favorite parts from all of them so you can combine it into your own thing.

If you focus too narrowly on one or two artists that you like, you're going to sound like a copy of them more often than not.

The easiest thing to do is to make music in the genre that you are most comfortable in, meaning the one you have listened to the most and understand the best. Then you can throw in some outside influences into that style if that's what you wanna do.

Learn. Listen broadly, and listen deeply. A lot of your early work is going to be derivative, no matter how hard you try to make something original. It's only through practice, exploration, and developing a thorough understanding of music that you'll finally stumble across something new.

I wouldnt worry about that too much. Like in writing, no music is totally original. The best pull inspiration from others, adding their own to it. You could take the style of the band and create something new. You could try to add your own unique flair. You might remove elements. Just have fun making music - worry about the end result, not anything else.
