Vocal Curation Team
Collaborative, conscious, and committed to content. We're rounding up the best that the Vocal network has to offer.
To the Beat: March 2020
Given all that's happening around us, we wanted to put together something that soothes the overwhelming emotions that we're all experiencing. This month we're bringing To the Beat back in an effort to highlight you, the creators, who lift us up when we're feeling down. Your stories have made this playlist possible, with songs that remind us to dance, that help us blow off some steam, that make us hopeful, that make us think of better days, that we dedicate to those we love, and so much more.
How We Choose What Stories Are Featured as Top Stories
Have you ever scrolled through Instagram to see that Vocal shared another creator’s story? Or maybe you were reading through Top Stories or Vocal Verified roundups, and you wondered to yourself, “How do I get my story featured?” Every creator has been there—after all, isn’t that what we all want? To be recognized for what we create and have more people see our work?
To the Beat: January 2020
New year, new beats! We're excited to kick off 2020 with another round of all the songs you loved this month. To the Beat is back with everything from oldies that remind us of how much has changed during this past decade, to some Grammy winners who didn't fail to impress.
To the Beat: December 2019
To the Beat is back with a roundup curated from all of the stories you shared in the month of December. This month's collection includes some throwbacks, roundups and reflections on this past year, and—predictably—a whole bunch of holiday bangers. We've had the list playing on repeat all month, and we hope you enjoy taking a look back at the previous month, year, decade, and six decades with our creators.
19 Things Our Creators Taught Us in 2019
It’s that time of the year again, people! As we get ready to close off 2019 (hello 2020!) we’re looking back at what this year has meant for the Vocal community. Not only has our platform gone through some big updates over the course of this year, but we’ve been excited to welcome many new creators and help them share their stories. Thanks to these stories, we’ve discovered new artists, picked up a few hobbies, taken several notes on how to actually practice self-care, and so much more.
To the Beat: November 2019
We’re back! Here's a brand new playlist featuring the songs and artists you loved in November. We’ve got a bit of everything in this edition of To the Beat, from lo-fi indie jams to pop hits and everything in between. This month’s roundup features an impressive array of genres, artists, and styles, so thanks for sharing your unique sound with us! Give the playlist a listen before you start exclusively listening to Christmas music; we promise it’s worth it! Whether you feel like jamming out to an old favorite or you’re in the mood to discover something new, we’ve got you covered.
To the Beat: October 2019
To the Beat is back with a new roundup curated from all your October stories. This month’s playlist is chock-full of hits, including everything from spooky soundtracks to emotional ballads that take us back a few decades. We had creators sharing their passion for so many different styles of music and diverse artists, and we couldn’t be more grateful for that. We’ve already added some of these tracks to our personal favorites, and we’re sure you’ll find something new that you’ll love too!
To the Beat: September 2019
To the Beat is a new series curated by our team, from your stories. Creators on Beat share all kinds of music everyday, so we wanted to make it easier for you to access it all in one place. At the end of every month, we'll be sharing a playlist with songs that have inspired our creators to share stories about them on Vocal. From music that makes you dance, to songs that bring a smile to your face, or those that helped you get over a breakup—you'll find a little bit of everything on To the Beat.
