Meet Jaymie, a 23 year old Spotify playlist curator from New Orleans, Louisiana…
"I am currently taking a gap year before starting graduate school in my pursuit of PhD in Clinical Psychology. I enjoy giving back to communities that are underserved, and I am actually leaving soon to go on a ten month service program. I’m fascinated by the arts; my interests lie in fashion, music, and photography. I have a very curious mind so I’m always working on developing those crafts in my spare time! Also, can’t leave out traveling. I believe myself to be a citizen of the world and there is no place I don't plan to visit.
A quote that I live by, ‘The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.’ -Marcel Proust"
When & why did you make your playlist?
Maybe a little over a year ago? I made it because I was inspired by the film “Hello, My Name is Doris.” It gave off a chill, yet manic, vibe that really kicked off the types of songs I wanted on the playlist.
Describe your playlist. Perfect situation(s) for jamming include:
In the car; a house party; the sun coming down on the best boat day; headphones and housework; a laid back workout
What was the best concert you've ever attended and why? (Include as many details as you'd like: city / venue / when / with whom...)
Seeing K. Flay in Erlangen, Germany was by far the best concert I’ve attended! I went with a couple of my study abroad a buddies. The concert was held at a venue called E-Work (very dark alluring place) on 4/20/2018. I still find myself thinking about the electricity of it all.
What kind of music / artists did you grow up listening to?
All kinds. I grew up listening to all the decades! From the 40’s to the current decade! Including international music! Mainly, my parents played classic 50/60’s in the house which I value very much today.
Who are your all-time favorite artists and why?
Johnny Cash, Fleetwood Mac, Adele, and I would even venture to even include Alt-J. Most of these artists are real story tellers; they have lots to share and I’m eager to listen to perspectives that differ in emotion or reaction than my own. Alt-J is story telling, but can be very vague and therefor misunderstood. I like applying my own meaning to their music and lyrics.
