A song that you love to listen to when you’re:
You’re happy and upbeat: Happy by Pharrel Williams
You’re really low: Don’t Worry Be Happy by Bobby Mcferrin
You’re working out: Its mostly EDM, mostly because of the music that’s played in my gym

How would you describe your taste in music: Diverse, eclectic and sometimes a bit schizophrenic

Your favourite time/way to listen to music during the day: Always by morning

One band/musician you want a private concert from: Abida Parveen

One live act you would love to see at least once in your life: The Pat Metheny Group
