Meet Lauren, a 24-year-old Spotify playlist curator from Minnesota.
“This playlist started as something to set the mood. But as I listened to more music that went in here, I realized that most of the songs are not just about the act, but also around the act as well.”
If you had the chance to interview an artist, who would it be?
If I could, I would interview Jhene Aiko.
Do you have a hidden talent?
I sing but that’s not exactly hidden. I do it every chance I can.
Do you play any instruments? If no, which instrument do you wish you could play?
I play the piano and guitar.
Do you have a favorite quote?
"To be surrounded by music, to hear music, to play music - seems as natural as breathing."
What's more important to you: music or lyrics? Why?
For me, it’s the lyrics but MOST importantly, how the artist sings those lyrics. The lyrics could be the most in-depth and soul searching thing you’ve ever heard, but without soul and a true passion for the music, the song is nothing but empty and flat. The soul and passion of a true artist is everything when it comes to truly great music.
