Music CURATION SERVICES

I provide music curation services for brands who wish to integrate music and playlist content into their marketing and promotional campaigns. Not only is it an easy and effective addition to your content schedule, but curated music content is also one of the best ways for your brand to reach and influence your customers when they’re not in front of a screen.

WHY?

Music is emotional, it connects and influences people, and it’s deeply integrated into people’s lives. For brands who want to strengthen their relationship with their customers by promoting a specific emotion or lifestyle, music content can be a very effective way of doing that.

In the same way that your brands utilizes specific visual aesthetics, voice, photo/video content, and influencers to define itself, it can use music content to strengthen it’s identity as well.

WHAT?

You may be thinking, “Anybody from my team can curate playlists right?” Well, yes, but there’s a different between nuanced quality music curation, and standard playlist making.

If you want your brand to be promoting playlists full of music that everyone has heard countless times before, then my services are not right for you. However, if you want a playlist that will excite and impress your customers with new sounds that they love, along with sounds they’re already familiar with, then read on.

WHO?

Through over 10 years of experience in curation, I have a very deep knowledge of contemporary music.

In addition to my own detailed music profiles on Spotify and Apple Music, I’ve curated music for some of the world’s biggest brands.

FAQ

+ WHAT MUSIC GENRES DO YOU CURATE WITHIN?

Because I am first and foremost a music fan, there are certain genres I curate within and certain genres that I do not. I focus on my favorite genres that are popular and trending at the moment. I specialize in pop, hip hop, R&B, electronic, future bass, all sub genres of house, techno, electro pop, synth pop, indietronica (the blend of live band and electronic), indie pop, and indie rock. I don’t curate within EDM, trance, dubstep, trap, latin, country, folk and acoustic, reggae, heavy metal, alternative rock, classical, jazz, blues, classic rock, or any decade specific genres.

+ WHAT IS YOUR CURATION STRATEGY?

Over the years, I’ve developed very specific proprietary strategies for developing playlists that will appeal to the widest market of people. I use a specific mix of well known and up-and-coming songs, I balance specific genres based on music trends, and I utilize the right blend of recent releases and slightly older favorites. I only specialize in contemporary music from the past few years. By only using new music, then it means your content stays fresh and can consistently be updated.
