Meet Makayla, a young and inspiring playlister from Michigan.
“ I made the playlist mostly because I found a lot of songs that related to this character, so I threw them all in a playlist for myself and others to listen to. ”
Do you play any instruments? If no, which instrument do you wish you could play?
I do actually! I played the trumpet for 5 years in the school band, and I’m teaching myself to play the guitar
Name one of your favorite albums of all time?
My current favorite album would have to be Pray For The Wicked by Panic! At The Disco. I’ve been listening to Brendon Urie for a long time now and seeing how much he’s grown as an artist makes me proud in a way
What music did you grow up listening to as a young kid?
My moms boyfriend while I was growing up was actually the drummer for a local rock group so I listened to a lot of stuff by people like Papa Roach and Avenge Sevenfold
Name your top 3 favorite artist and why?
It’s tough to pick my favorites but I’d say Brendon Urie because I’ve always liked his music and he’s a genuinely good singer. Alec Benjamin also because you can tell he cares about what he does and doesn’t just do it to get famous. Last but not least is Billie Eilish because she achieved her dreams at a young age and isn’t afraid to do what music she likes instead of something more mainstream
What is your favorite quote?
This quote is actually music related, it’s a quote from the Twenty One Pilets song Truce. It’s “The sun will rise and we will try again.” Which I see as an every day is a new beginning kind of thing. I actually have a sunset tattoo with the word truce on it because of this line
