Collection of playlists from people that I meet around the world.... What about you, what do you sound like?

sounds like us

The music we listen to describes a lot about who we are…

As I travel I meet so many people from seemingly infinite backgrounds
and the music they listen to says so much.

Sounds Like is an idea;
to bring people together through their individual style
influenced by a place and time we shared.

What about you? What do you Sound Like?

... but how was SoundsLike born?

It all started with my playlist.

When I decided to leave Lisbon and move to Sagres I had to drive 3h by myself for the very first time. My car is quite old and the radio only took 1 cd at a time, so I decided to create a playlist with songs that I wouldn’t mind listening again and again and again.

Little did I know that my car would sort of become the community car at the hostel and we kept listening to the same cd.

Eventually we started to get tired of it so I bought a bunch of cd’s and asked each person to make their own and we would listen to them in the car.

The idea was too good, I had to find a way to share all the playlists with everyone.

With everyone’s help we picked the name of the project, designed the logo and the first version of the website.

As soon as it was on I found Jury listening to his own playlist and saying “damn, I really like this playlist”, Francesca got addicted to Kari’s playlist and Manu couldn’t even hear his own “I have heard these songs too many times already”.

My playlist would still be picked sometimes.

For my birthday my parents gave me a new radio for the car and, ironically, my cd was inside the old radio and is now lost.

First time you meet Alex you can't believe she is only 23, she is wise and self confident (even if she doesn't believe it), she is energetic like an hurricane! but also sweet as a tangerine...always caring about everybody and understanding in every situation. She has a big heart and is willing to do anything she can to help the people around her, even if they are complete strangers. If you go out with her, you'll see she brings out her crazy mood, and expect something very surprising! Everyone needs an Alex!
