This week, we are shining a light on our Director of Digital Content Strategy and Production, Ashley, to learn more about who he is and what he is listening to!
What are your favorite genres of music?
My favorite genre of music is tied between Jazz and anything on the Untitled Playlist on Apple Music.
Do you play an instrument, if so, what and for how long?
I am a piano player- and love playing everything from Ben Folds to to Bach.
What appeals to you about music?
Music is the great equalizer- a middle C on a Steinway is a middle C on a Casio Keyboard. It’s what you do with it that matters.
First Concert You Attended?
The first concert I attended was probably Raffi or something my parents picked, but the most impressionable concert I went to was Ben Folds- standing about 10 feet from him and realizing the piano isn’t just a piece of furniture in a living room but a legit rock instrument.
