Athena’s focus is new and unsigned artists. Her playlist is called “Fresh Finds” and it has over 500,000 followers.
Quite a few artists that she’s put on her playlist have been signed or were able to quit their day jobs! A few of those artists are Naaz and Ryland Rose.
BuzzFeed News joined Athena at Spotify and followed her work routine, which involves hours of listening to music.
