My name is Krister Axel. I spent my career doing two things: writing, producing and performing music; and designing web applications. I now have my 10,000 hours in both of those things.
I get hundreds of song submissions every week at CHILLFILTR.com. I listen to everything, take notes on what I like, and give detailed feedback on what I don't totally resonate with. For me, this is a dream job.
We were early predictors for some pretty big up-and-comers from last year: Wingtip, Leah Capelle, Cautious Clay, Grizfolk, and Samm Henshaw are just a few of the artists that we ran stories on before they were a thing.
