Meet The Curator: Shar Clay
Shar Clay is a musician who was born on September 7th, 1994. Shar is from San Antonio, Texas but moved to multiple places all throughout his life. He decided to pursue music when he was 14 and by the age of 18 he attended The College of Santa Fe in New Mexico to study music. Shar lived in Liverpool England and was in a short lived punk band called Mau Revolt. When Shar moved back to the states he found a new love passion for music media and started his own label called "Black Jerusalem Records". Black Jerusalem was a documentation of all of his releases he did with past projects. It was by that time where Shar realized the importance of having underground musicians getting the recognition that mainstream artists have. Shar decided to volunteer for radio stations and eventually found his way into the curating world. With the help of musicto, Shar currently strives to be a curator with a statement. That statement is to announce that all art is relevant in the music industry. From all genres from pop to experimental. Believing that each genre has its mainstream and its underground. Regardless of the rank of the artist, each musician is relevant to each other, if the work is devoted.
Lovely riffs, great lyrics, and sweet sampling are some of the few reasons why we all love a good song in music these days. We can also relate to our favorite musician due to personal backgrounds, experiences, philosophy and many other reasons. However, the one common ground that all of our favorite artist share is that they all had to go through a come up to get where they are at now. The same come up that underground musicians are going through today. This playlist is a devotion to showcase the similarities between touring and local musicians. With this playlist you can enjoy your favorite artist while you can expand your mind to a new possible favorite.
