Meet The Curator: Derek Tenny
It started the fist time I was handed the aux driving around the Chicago suburbs. It evolved over my 3 years of being a radio Dj at Purdue. Now at 23 years old, I’m ready for the next step in my passion for sharing music. Being apart of the Musicto family.
As a musician myself, I’ve met insanely talented artists who just need a break. So, I've made it my mission. Listening to over 600 full albums in the last two years alone, and creating over 20 playlist on my Spotify. I've been searching. There is so much treasure out there, just waiting to be discovered. I’m just tryna make the map.
Ironically, I've always used music to communicate what I can't say in words and am now doing the reverse. Fundamentally, this playlist is soul personified. I want it to be able to flow when played in order yet, still be consistent in quality and vibe when on shuffle. This will take community. So please make sure to follow my social media links as well as the playlist itself. I'd also love to hear from you! So reach out and message me what you love, what you think, and your own track suggestions!
All that being said, I'm committed to search high and low to showcase the very best. Neo-soul, Jazz, RnB, Hiphop and numerous newer styles will be on full display here . All in the pursuit of making a playlist that speaks directly to the soul in each of us.
