Meet Courtney, a 28-year-old from Houston, Texas.
“I just made a playlist that I could listen to while I animate at work (I'm a motion designer: graphic design + animation). The playlist began with a few bands and then I kept adding to it based on the style of music. I wanted something I could put on shuffle and not want to skip a song.”


Name your top 3 favorite artists and why?

Currently it's The Dillinger Escape Plan, Sleep, Knocked Loose...but to be honest I also love Sturgill Simpson, Arcade Fire, emo/pop-punk from the 2000s. I love these artists because their music is fun to analyze and I used to geek out on guitar riffs.


What music did you grow up listening to as a young kid?

Black metal, hardcore, screamo (still my guilty pleasures).


Do you play any instruments?

Yes, guitar, mandolin, piano, ukulele, and a little bit of the fiddle.


What is the best concert that you have ever been to?

Green Day in 2005, I got pulled on stage to play guitar with them and they gave me the guitar to keep!
