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…

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.

Hi there, my name's Kara Bradford, I'm living in Pasadena CA in the USA, and I'm currently a student, swim coach, and songwriter! 

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

I make playlists for myself pretty constantly, so making the switch over to doing it professionally was as easy as pie. I love being able to share the amazing songs I find, as well as songs that I love. I also love getting to utilize my skill in prose to describe what I'm listening to and why I love them! Sharing music has always been a joy of mine, so curating for me just makes sense.

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

I wouldn’t say that I ever really gave it a thought, it just kinda fell in my lap. I’ve always enjoyed sharing music/making a mix tape for friends, so there’s that, but I think I really enjoy listening to a LOT of new music.

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

I've always loved exploring and sharing new music but I've only recently moved over to the streaming world. I still buy copies of albums though - there's nothing better than having the real McCoy and not a compressed file. Even back in the days of tapes, it was always a buzz exposing someone to a new discovery. The streaming platforms take it to the next level and allow you to share on a global scale. Furthermore being part of the Music to community connects you with other like minded folk, artists and new music. It has so many facets that make it really unique.

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

I think I always wanted to write, I love describing the things I see and feel.  It is great curating a playlist, it creates a space to explore how a particular song makes you feel, and then explain why you love it. ...
