Meet Kevin, a 24 year old Spotify playlist curator from Kansas City, Missouri.
“I made this playlist a few years back when I was in college. I’ve always loved making playlists and organizing my own music, but I suppose the reason I made _this_ playlist was to collect all of the dopest songs that I discovered and that I was exposed to from all different kinds of people. I have an expansive taste in music but it’s very easy for me to sort out the good from the bad. It’s a great playlist for discovering new music that you haven’t heard before. I have songs on there that range from mainstream to underground.”
Who is your favorite artist?
One of the hardest questions to answer. It’s way too hard to choose just one, but my favorite bands of all time would probably have to be System of a Down or A Day to Remember. I was raised on rock music and these bands became huge influences in my life. As for individual artists however, I’m a big fan of Eminem, Mac Miller (RIP). Tech N9ne. and Lil Dicky – just to name a few.
What's your favorite concert you've been to?
Probably the first time I saw A Day to Remember, they played every song I wanted to hear and it got rowdy in the pit. I also saw Panic! at the Disco at an outdoor venue once and it was unbelievable, I was maybe 2 rows from the front. Brendon Urie puts on a breathtaking performance.
Do you play any instruments? If not, is there one you would like to learn?
I’ve been playing guitar casually since I was age 11. I don’t write my own music or anything. I would love to learn how to play piano with more than just one hand.
What artist (dead or alive) had the biggest impact on your life?
I believe music is most influential in our preteen to teenage years. So the artists/bands that influenced me most during that time of my life were Senses Fail, Fall Out Boy, P!ATD, Eminem, AC/DC, System of a Down, and Jacks Mannequin. I had all their music.
Name the last album you purchased?
I think the last physical album that I purchased was probably FOB’s Infinity on High, or something. Everything became digital after that.
