18 year old, Jaz grew up in a town close to London before moving to the countryside in 2015.
"When I listen to music I wouldn’t say I have a favorite genre, I like to dip in and out of genres and I go through phases of liking one more than the others. I think my BANGERS playlist takes a strong influence from the music I grew up around in the 00’s
What music did you listen to growing up?
Growing up, my parents listened to a lot of 80’s rock from their era such as Queen and Bon Jovi. I also remember hearing a lot of Shania Twain which makes a contrast. My favorite music growing up must have been the Brit Pop at the time such as McFly and later on One Direction obviously!
What is the best concert you’ve ever been to?
I definitely couldn’t single out my favorite one I’ve been to, but the artist I really want to see live is Rae Sremmund.
What is the last song you listened to?
NFWMB by Hozier
Name your top 3 artists and why?
Hozier. I have only recently began listening to his music but I have it on repeat at the moment. His music is similar to that of LANY who I am also a fan of.
Rihanna. While her voice is amazing and it’s insane how many types of music she can create and pull off, I admire the ways she uses her platform to further her own career as well as to help others who aren’t as lucky.
Vince Staples. I just like the way he approaches the genre and makes different music.
What artist dead or alive would you want to interview and why?
There are so many influential artists whose lives ended early who I could choose but I think Amy Winehouse is who I would want to talk to.
