Meet Ian Keith Murillo, 18 years old from Costa Rica.
“I have always been in charge of playing music in my friends’ parties and reunions. When I was about 14 one of my best friends asked me if there was a place where he could listen to the music that I played; I had no such place. He then convinced me to create a playlist for him to listen. Solely on word of mouth and no social media, Campfire began amounting hundreds of followers in the first months. To this day it is a playlist with no Instagram or Facebook page, no ads. It is purely a platform where I show people the music that I love and that has made it grow into what it is today.”

What is the most annoying song in the world? 

Any Jake Paul song!!!

What’s more important to you? Music; or Lyrics? Why? 

For me the lyrics are the most essential aspect of the song itself. The lyrics have the power of setting the tone for the song and transmit a transcending message that resonates with the audience. Also, lyrics in themselves are a form of music. Sentence structure, number of syllables per verse, length of chorus and word choice are essential to the rhythm of the song. Also, through the lyrics one can truly discover the artist’s ability. How the artist utilizes rhyme, alliteration and chooses to form the lines of the song to convey a message and for the song to become rhythmically pleasing speaks plenty to the abilities of the artist.
