Meet Jayson, a 18 year old Spotify playlist curator from Australia.
“I made my playlist when I was back in school, It started as a hobby and then it gained traction fast. At the time I was only 16 almost 17 and remember hitting my first 100 followers on the playlist back in November 2017. I thought it was amazing and I had no idea that I would be where I am today without it! I was told by a friend to add my 'email' to the bio so people could get in contact with me. I did and the emails kept coming. I had well-known artists like Ph4de, xdomthebomb, multiple SoundCloud rappers coming to Spotify. I was amazed and I had always had a passion for music just did not know how to get started. I have made more playlists and try my best to understand the demand for particular playlists in the Spotify community and it was honestly one of my favorite hobbies which is now a job.”
Who is your favorite artist?
My favourite artist would have to be XXXTentacion, His music has connected with me on multiple levels when I went through some hard times at the end of school, and finding out about his passing made me even closer to his music. RIP X.
Best concert you've ever been to?
The best concert I have ever been too was Groovin the Moo 2019 which I went too 2 days ago! I saw artists like Coolio, Hilltop Hoods, Billie Eilish and even Hermitude!
Do you play any instruments? If not is there one you would like to learn?
Back was I was 13 I used to DJ for parties and still have my deck, Mum and Dad saw the potential and bought me a novation launchpad but other than that I would really wish to play the Guitar before I die.
What artist (dead or alive) had the biggest impact on your life?
XXXTentacion as said before
