Here’s the third in our series of spotlights on the music of Pandora’s Music Analysts. (click here for the first and the second)
Seth Ford-Young (at left, with Jeff Anthony at right) is one of our Senior Analysts and can be found playing the bass on a Myles Boisen station, as well as on a Mia and Jonah station. The Boisen cd is blues-based improvisational music. Mia and Jonah is a singer-songwriter duo blend of country, folk, and rock. It’s not hard to catch Seth gigging around San Francisco; he’s constantly playing live. And look for him on Tom Waits’ new release, coming out this fall!
Will Redmond can be found on Pandora on the Blipvert station. With a smirk, Will refers to Blipvert as “heavy duty computer music.” I saw Will perform once, and he ripped his glasses right off his face and threw them on the ground while he was playing. I was impressed by his rock star cred, to say the least!
Scott Barkan is a recent transplant from New York, where he got his degree in music composition. He can be heard on the Barky station. Barky is an instrumental indie rock and avant jazz trio based out of New York City.
Jellyroll is a band that involves several of our Music Analysts. Steve Dekrone plays the drums, Seth Ford-Young the acoustic bass, and Tom Griesser plays the tenor sax. Along with three other non-Pandora musicians, they play jump-blues and swing, some covers, along the lines of Louis Jordan, Helen Humes, early Etta James, and some original material.
Chris Horgan (pictured below, in our CD library) and Christian Runge, two integral and hard-working parts of the Pandora family, are Beatropolis. Theirs is electroacoustic music in the styles of downtempo and drum and bass. Chris and Christian are also found on the Syncrosystem station, which is a nice world fusion.

    I would like to commend everyone who works on this site for their work. You have broadened my musical horizons in a way that I never thought possible. There is so much great music out there that doesn't get played. Thanks to you, I get to hear it. Keep up the good work. (Also, couldn't help but plug two artists that aren't on your site: Andreas Kapsalis Trio out of Chicago and Black Cat Revival out of Columbus, Ohio. A quick listen to either band and I'm sure you'll agree they are worth considering for your site.) Thanks again for the best resource for music on the Internet!!!!

    Ahhhh, the sweet sound of headphones music to calm the savage beast of stress deep in the cave within. Ahhhh the endless spherical sounds of music blessing the right side of my brain through the canels of my ears reducing the work load that bombards the leftside of my brain. The walls of my cubicle thankyou Pandora The walls in my kitchen praise you pandora for bring melody to the food. The walls of the spare bedroom that is used as a office thankyou Pandora for making balancing the check book easier. One day the world will thankyou Pandora for providing such a individualized music selection

    Hooray, bravo & Schweeet. You added Kenna! -jay p.s. Question: Do you track requests that come in through the Add Music to this Station function? I.e. if you get a request for an artist/song that is not yet in the library, does it get added to a list? Jest wonderin'.
