Music is human. Everyone has a unique relationship with music –what might be the soundtrack to someone’s first kiss may also be another’s breakup song. The process of making music requires human touch. Similarly, the process of selecting music for others also requires human touch.
We’re very fortunate to live in a time where music is easily accessible and choices are vast. But it can be overwhelming to sift through everything that’s out there. Your trusted record store clerk or a friend with similar taste can be a valuable and trusted advocate for your own music listening and discovery.
At Pandora we rely on the commitment and knowledge of several teams of experts that help connect listeners and music. Our music analysts, curators, scientists and librarians live and breathe music in and out of their day job. They are also composers, DJs, producers, lead singers, guitarists, drummers, session and touring musicians – people whose lives are built around music. People who know how much the next song matters.
Over the next few months, we’ll introduce you to select Musicologists on Instagram, give you the chance to hang out with them on Twitter, give you a peek inside their minds on Medium and so much more.
Meet us each week on Pandora’s #MusicologistMonday.
