Fresh Finds is a Spotify playlist that I created in 2016. It was a playlist that I would add songs by artists that I did not know but I loved. Since then, my music taste has evolved and has changed from a pop teenage vibe to an indie rock scene. I honestly don’t favor music in the Top 100 or any artists that is well known (with a few exceptions). I think small bands deserve recognition because they work hard.


Though some people may tell me my music sucks (which is rude) it keeps me happy. Not everyone has to like my genre preference but should except the difference. I made top songs and artists lists that I recommend if you’re looking for something different than the usual.


And if you recognize any of these or have recommendations for me… follow my Spotify JacklynKarp.
