KarpetJuice was created in the summer of 2013 as CarpetJuice (carpetjuice.tumblr.com). Its creation came from the need for an outlet for all the music related thoughts that occupy my mind. The blog was created by me! Melissa Colangelo.
My first blog post, “That Feeling” pretty much sums up what I am trying to accomplish with KarpetJuice. By sharing and opening ears to new undiscovered music, I aim to create that moment - the moment when you first hear a song that will change your life and you will listen to forever.
I am a complete nerd when it comes to music but not in the sense you would think, where I can name every artist to ever exist. In this ever-changing music world, I am more intrigued with how people interact and connect with music. I am so fascinated with the music world both from the listener’s perspective and the artist perspective. I just want to soak it all up. I love how much change is happening in this world, both good and bad, and I think it’s so exciting to see the next steps the industry goes in. That being said, you can expect Industry related topics from KJ, but I would also love for this blog to become interactive and turn into a community with an ongoing conversation and an exchanging of ideas.
Reading about music on the web can often be intimidating - I sometimes become anxious from all the information, feeling like I am behind on music trends and news. I don't pretend to know everything about music because I don't know everything. This blogs isn't about that; it’s about sharing what make me happy.
I am planning on doing some pretty cool things with KJ. I invite you to come along for the ride and encourage you to join the conversation.
