Maria Lehua Fish - Music to Curator Interview

Hi there world! I am Maria Lehua Fish, originally from Kaua’i, Hawai’i but hanging in Petaluma, CA at the moment - a little north of San Francisco.

I currently live my life by walking doggos, farming vegetables/flowers, a smidge of digital marketing and putting on secret live music shows around San Francisco - all whilst cruzing around in an old Subaru outback with the windows down and the music always a little too loud. All in an effort to spend more time with plants, music, and allowing time to create all the art I possibly can…

2/ Is This Something You Always Wanted To Do? What Do You Enjoy About It?

Creating playlists have been one my favorite ways to ease my mind. I love spending time with hundreds of albums and trying to make sure every single track is in its right place. For sure, I knew I wanted to do something with music but, I would never guessed I could get a job like this…

Caitlin Moss - Music to Curator Interview

My name is Caitlin Moss. I live in Los Angeles, CA in the United States. I currently teach music and work as a drummer in a few bands. 

Is This Something You Always Wanted To Do?  What Do You Enjoy About It? I’ve wanted to be a musician since I started playing drums over 20 years ago. I’ve always loved the way playing drums feels, getting to be with other musicians, creating new things, being in the moment and performing in front of people. I didn’t realize I wanted to teach until I was working with youth in another capacity and realized how much I enjoyed it…

Aarushi Aggarwal - Music to Curator Interview

My name is Aarushi and I live in Delhi, India where I am a student. Hopefully not for long though; I graduate in May.

2/ Is This Something You Always Wanted To Do? What Do You Enjoy About It?

Yes, this is something I have wanted to do at least for the last 6 years. I realised I loved discovering new music and what bummed me out was people's low tolerance towards new and good music. Everyone listens to the same kind of generic stuff that everyone else is listening to. As a result, some great artists and great music get ignored. My aim was to bring the less heard music to people: it started with me sharing music with friends and now it extends to the world. I get a kick out of people telling me that they loved what I introduced them to.

2/ Is This Something You Always Wanted To Do?  What Do You Enjoy About It?

I think it’s something that I’ve always wanted to do. I’ve always hated the music on the radio and enjoyed searching for new music. The feeling of finding a song you love that you would have never found if you weren’t digging is amazing…

2/ Is This Something You Always Wanted To Do?  What Do You Enjoy About It?

Playlist curation has always been really fun and I'm so glad that I found Music to because it allows me to share new music with a much larger audience. My favorite part about adding new songs to my playlist is the interaction you can have through listeners through social media.
