Meet first term Wild Keeper, Cade! Cade is based in Michigan and his favorite way to experience the outdoors is by camping. Cade shared with us that he got into the outdoors after his music taste started evolving.
He reflected that, "I used to exclusively listen to rap music, which I still love listening to with friends. However, my change slowly started a few years ago. I used to work at a pizza and grinder shop called Mancino's and this is where I made some of my best friends today. They would always listen to indie rock/pop or alt rock kind of music and one of them even played in a band who I quickly became friends with. Initially I couldn’t stand some of the music they would play in the store but I grew to love it.
That was a long period of time for that change in genres, however, there is an artist and moment I can connect it to. In spring of 2021, myself and some friends took a surprise visit to Arizona to visit my brother who attends ASU. While sitting in the car, looking over some mountains during the sunset they introduced me to the artist Goth Babe with his song Moments/Tides. It felt like a movie in the sense that the music feels like it would play in the montage of an epic young adult summer adventure!
