When & why did you make your playlist?
I started this playlist around 2016-2017 and continuously updated as more music released. I decided to make it to help set the mood between lovers, provide background noise, or to just simply fall asleep to.
Describe your playlist. Perfect situation(s) for jamming include:
This playlist is designed for the bedroom. Between lovers, couples, marriages, boyfriend/girlfriends, FWBs, etc. It's music to have sex to or to initiate sex.
What was the best concert you've ever attended and why? (Include as many details as you'd like: city / venue / when / with whom...)
The best concert I've ever attended happened just recently. August 10th, 2019 at Red Rocks in Denver, Colorado. It was an Alison Wonderland show and it was absolutely magical. She put her heart, blood, sweat, tears, and soul into that show. You could tell that venue meant a lot to her. I went by myself but made friends rather quickly. Her openers were incredible and she was even better. I hope it's put up on live stream somewhere someday so everyone can experience that show.
What kind of music / artists did you grow up listening to?
Growing up I listened to a lot of rap. Pretty much nothing but rap and hip-hop. It wasn't until I got into college where I started to broaden my horizons into EDM, alternative, indie, and even score. Music growing up was pretty much Lil Wayne, Eminem, Wiz Khalifa, Kanye West, Drake, Big Sean. The big rappers of the late '00's early '10's.
Who are your all-time favorite artists and why?
Wiz Khalifa, Ed Sheeran, Flume, are probably my big 3. They all spread into different genres but they are probably my favorite in their respective fields. Ed Sheeran is just very different and his lyrics just seem so relatable to me. I love music, but the art of words is what really gets to me. I'm a big lyrics guy. Flume I discovered when I first started listening to EDM and I've been big into that scene for about 4-5 years now and he is still my favorite. He's quite different and puts on a hell of a show. If I ever make music, he would definitely be one of the top influences on my sound. Wiz Khalifa I discovered early in my high school career and he was just such a change of pace. All the other rappers were talking about hard drugs, violence, women being treated like property and such. He was just such a refreshing voice because he's just so happy and uplifting and just wishes love among everyone.
