Meet Tara, a 21-year-old Spotify playlist curator from Gloucester City, NJ.
“I made this playlist for myself, mainly to listen to in my car. I pretty much added every single song I’ve ever liked. I have a very wide range of taste when it comes to music, so it definitely has a little something for everyone. I’ve shared my playlist with some friends and I guess from there it blew up.”
If you had the chance to interview an artist, who would it be?
Taylor Swift or Bruce Springsteen. You’ll notice that those two names come up frequently throughout my playlist.
Do you have a hidden talent?
I’m pretty good at identifying songs from the first couple of seconds. I also can memorize the lyrics for any song after I listen to it twice.
Do you play any instruments? If no, which instrument do you wish you could play?
I’ve always wanted to learn how to play guitar or piano.
Do you have a favorite quote?
“Guess what, I have flaws. What are they? Oh I don't know. I sing in the shower. Sometimes I spend too much time volunteering. Occasionally I'll hit somebody with my car. So sue me.” - Michael Scott
What's more important to you: music or lyrics? Why?
I think that both are very important. There are songs I love that have little to no lyrics that have such great beats/melodies/etc. There are other songs that are so simple with very powerful lyrics. I think it varies from song to song for me.
