PLAYLIST: Growing Up Brooke

Hi, Infectious readers! I’m Brooke. I have grown to love music deeply, thanks in part to some family members introducing it to me and to growing up in one of the best music eras…ever. Sorry, ’80s purists. Oddly, my parents are not hugely musical people. My father is more of a sports guy and my mom makes the world better each day by being a nurse. Still, I found music, and it makes more sense than anything. The ten songs below will take you through my evolution of music taste,…

PLAYLIST: Growing Up Angie

Hello Infectious Readers! I’m Angela Flores. I am 19-years-old and am currently a student at Texas A&M University. I have been writing for Infectious Magazine since June of 2014 and still get excited every time I start writing a piece. I wouldn’t trade my time here for anything.

Between listening to my mother’s oldies CD’s and my father’s tejano radio stations, I’ve learned to appreciate different genres of music, regardless of whether or not they’re top hits. Below are…

PLAYLIST: Growing Up Nathan

Hey! I’m Nathan Daniel and I’m 19 (not Daniels. I know, I’m a weirdo and I have a first name for a last name). As far as Infectious goes, I’m a bit of a rare breed: I’m the only contributor from the UK. Due to which, part of this may be less familiar for a lot of you Americans! I come from Nottingham (Robin Hood country), but currently live in the Cathedral City, Lincoln, where I study Media Production at university (or college, for you guys). I’m in my second year…

PLAYLIST: Growing Up Sami

Hey guys! My name is Sami! I am 23-years-old and currently reside in the Sunshine State. I have been with Infectious Magazine since September 2013. I am literally living my dream every time I put an article together. I have always been passionate about both music and writing, so when I realized that I could combine the two, there was no stopping me pursuing my dream. When I look back on the life I lived until now, it’s hard for me to think of time when music hasn’t been there….

Playlist: Growing Up Kristina

Hey there! My name is Kristina and I have been with Infectious since the beginning of the year. With Infectious, I have had the pleasure of meeting and seeing some of my favorite bands perform, but also learn and hear about different bands and types of music as well. I love a variety of music genres, but my heart is with heavy metal, rock and punk. My main educational focuses are photography and journalism, but recently I have been getting involved with social media and marketing. A lot of music has…
