Aside

Today, Instagram
announced the launch of
@ Music, an account
dedicated to highlighting
both well-known up-and-
coming artists from around
the world. The goal:
showcase the love of music
in the Instagram
community by showing
users a different side of
the artists and musicians.
Instagram wrote about the
new account in a blog post:
It means highlighting music
photographers, album
illustrators, instrument
makers and, of course,
fans. In the Instagram
tradition, we will also
welcome community
participation with a new,
music-themed monthly
hashtag project.
@Music will feature six
posts per week including
three different series:
#LocallySourced
featuring unsigned
artists
#DoubleTrack featuring
artist interest outside of
music
#15SecondLessons
featuring how-to videos
The first artist featured as
part of the launch was
@Questlove, Roots
drummer and leader of the
Tonight Show house band.
In addition to being an early
adopter to social media,
apparently Questlove likes
to use his Instagram
account to geek out about
food. This has become a
real passion for him since
visiting The Cooking Lab in
Seattle.
He told Instagram:
I never thought of myself
as a science nerd. I am now
more into science than I
am into actual music.
The blog takes readers on a
journey of Questlove’s
discovery and love affair
with music, from sharing
his insomnia with Donny
Hathaway at the tender age
of three, to getting his first
drum set as a surprise
Christmas gift four years
later.

Questlove on Instagram

account for more features
on artists you love and
artists on the rise.
