When I met Liam at university and found out about Viberant, I thought it was really cool and refreshing. So many music review sites now pander to the same artists, report the same stories, and bring the same views. So when Liam asked if I wanted to write some bits for Viberant, I happily said yes. As much as we all are passionate about music, we all have some really different tastes and opinions, so it can get pretty fun here. Our Viberant profiles will hopefully give you some insight in to our individual tastes.
Q: The Viberant Classic Album Leaderboard is made of scores between all three of the creators of Viberant, if it was down to you what would you change?
A: I was late to the Viberant party, so I don’t get a say in the leaderboard scores. For me, Kanye West is too far up and Jamie XX and Justin Timberlake are too far down. Say what you want, Justified is a damn fine record.
Q: What was the first album you ever bought?
A: I HATE this question because I honestly have no idea. The first albums I really remember buying, and know had huge influence on my music taste were in a 2 for £15 deal in HMV – Holy Fire by Foals and Opposites by Biffy Clyro.
Q: What’s your most controversial music opinion?
A: The 1975 are trash. Fight me Liam.
Q: Who are your top 5 bands right now?
A: I have 3 that are always my favourites no matter what; Foals, Wolf Alice and Arctic Monkeys. At the moment though, I’m listening to a lot of Radiohead and Florence and the Machine.
Q: If you could switch lives with anyone for a day, who would it be?
A: Danny Boyle. He’s made some of my favourite films and he directs them so WELL so it would be cool to see how he does that.
Q: What’s the best gig you’ve ever been to?
A: Foals at Leeds Festival 2016, I cried loads.
Q: What do you love outside of music?
A: I love film.
Q: What was the last song you listened to?
A: Once in a Lifetime by Talking Heads, I was on a bit of an 80’s binge.
Q: What genre of music are you most into?
A: Tough one because I listen to everything, but alt-rock forms the core of my taste.
Q: Favourite rapper?
A: It would have to be between Tyler, the Creator, MF DOOM, or Kendrick Lamar.
Q: Favourite RnB artist?
A: I love Stevie Wonder and Janet Jackson!!
