Brian O’Toole (Vibin.fm) – Interview (Part 2)

by Emilio Pérez Miguel on March 10, 2012

Want to learn more about the music that brings the best out of entrepreneurs? Well, below you’ll find what inspires Brian O’Toole (founder of Vibin.fm) the most.

This is the second half of an interview we conducted earlier this week, right after I reviewed Vibin.fm on MusicKO. The first dealt with the startup itself, and you can read it here.

PART II

MUSIC & YOU

When did you become interested in music? What was the first album or single you ever purchased?

I’ve been intrigued with music since I was little. I remember my first CD I purchased was ‘Korn – Freak on a Leash.’ I took it to the counter and my mom saw the ‘Parental Advisory’ sticker and about lost her mind. Somehow, a bit of convincing did the job and I was the first in my 3rd grade class to have the CD.

Are you in a band yourself, or have you been in a band in the past? Is there a clip on YouTube or elsewhere we could watch?

I was not in a band. So, no, there is no clip on YouTube of me performing, but I do have lots of talented friends.

Musical likes and dislikes? Favorite artists?

I like all types of music genres. I really like Kanye West as an Artist. When I say the word ‘Artist,’ Kanye really does just that. He creates an experience in every song, every music video and every CD. No one does that better than Kanye.

If you had to name the song that moves you the most, what would it be? Can you pinpoint the reason why?

Right now, I’d have to say Nicki Minaj – Turn Me On. (Listen here: http://vibin.fm/#!/track/33196743) Don’t ask…

Is there a song that – to you – captures the spirit of your startup and what you have set out to do? What would it be?

David Guetta ft. Sia – Titanium. This song is all about perseverance and striving for something you believe in. I’ve been working towards this for a long time and this song personifies my journey. Oh, and it being a Progressive House song doesn’t hurt!
