Playlist Series on Spotify

Why Create Playlists?

A holdover from my time as a DJ, I care very much about curating music. I think music is an evolving language, and to say the right message, I have to learn the right words. So, to expand and practice my vocabulary, the Playlist Series collection was born.

Within you’ll find music ranging from meandering piano ballads, to chair-busting anthems, to sultry solos – and beyond. It took nearly twelve months of refinement before I made the project public, so you can be sure every song was chosen with great intention. I hope you find something you’ll love in here,

These lists are constantly growing – and shrinking – so check back often and be sure to save things that catch your fancy. Enjoy!

* Spotify embedded playlists list tracks based on custom order; for most intents and purposes, that means chronological order, which isn’t great for repeat listens. As some lists hold over 200 songs, your best bet is to listen to each playlist on shuffle, by “Artist” order, or by “Recent” order on Spotify’s websites or dedicated apps.
