I love all kinds of music. My love for music began with country music, taking huge interest into Taylor Swift in her early days. As the music industry progressed I began to emerge into the pop culture and found a love for all genres of music. I’d have artists such as Oh Wonder, The Beatles, Lorde, David Bowie, Taylor Swift, Coldplay and Dua Lipa all on one playlist.
