Member Mix | Daren Guillory

April 16, 2014 / By Joe Ross

Okay, so we’re a few days late with the latest Member Mix, but we felt like you would need a little mid-week boost.

Daren Guillory, the new Design Director at The Company of Others, supplied us with a really nice pick-me-up—he calls it a “Pop/ Eclectic/ Epic/ Mellow/ Obscura/ Acoustic” mix. Check it out below.

Here’s what Daren had to say about his playlist:

The title pretty much sums it up; I realize I could be creating the weirdest playlist of all time. I’m inspired and influenced by music of all kinds and almost every genre. There really isn’t an overarching concept or theme here – just a collection of songs I love. For various reasons, I connect with each song here or identify with the artist in some way – or at least I think I do. So there is some range here, some pop, some eclectic, some mellow, some obscure and some acoustic, etc. but I personally like that. Oh, and as far as CCR is concerned, I *was* born on the bayou. :)

Give it a listen:

What’s this Member Mix thing all about? Every other Friday we’ll bring you musical inspiration from Houston’s top creatives, in a series of designer-generated Spotify playlists. If you don’t already have Spotify, you can sign up for a free account here.

Be sure to follow AIGA Houston on Spotify for new playlists every other Friday! Check back in two weeks for another Member Mix!
