It's time for a new Backstage Intro again, this time we're getting to know one of our amazing stars, @Jacob, better!
Hey Jacob! Where are you from? This is a very complicated question, haha. I am American, I've lived in Washington state, Colorado, and North Carolina, but my family has lived in Germany for about 7 years now! I lived there with them for 4 years. Now I'm in Nashville, Tennessee for college.
Do you have any hobbies? I'm currently studying Audio Engineering Technology with a minor in Computer Science. I'm taking my Audio major because I love running live sound for concerts, musicals, etc. and I use my computer science knowledge a fair amount in my free time. I also really enjoy riding my bicycle around town and doing some rock climbing!
What year did you start using Spotify?
I think it was probably around 2011, I remember one of my friends (way back in middle school!) showed it to me and I was hooked.
What's your Spotify playlist of choice?
I'm a big fan of folk-pop style music. I think one of my favorite Spotify playlists would have to be Roots Rising:
(Check out Olalla by Blanco White on that playlist, one of my all time favorite songs!)
What's your favorite in-app feature?
Definitely Discover Weekly. I've found so many now-favorite artists and songs through that feature over the years. It always knows exactly what I want to hear!
If you could have any super power you want, which one would it be and why? I think the ability to manipulate time would be fantastic. I would be able to listen to all the music I want, and waste time with no consequences, and get all my homework done early... It really would be great!
