Name: Brian Hoffer
SoundCloud: Brian Hoffer
Location: Milwaukee, WI
What do you do? How do you use SoundCloud in your life?
I’m the marketing specialist for the Milwaukee Recreation Department. In my free time, I enjoy playing the piano and guitar. I’ve written over 2,500 pop/rock songs since the age of 7. In 2011, I achieved a lifelong dream when I released my debut album, Into the Boulevard. SoundCloud has made it incredibly easy for me to share my songs with other music fans around the world.
What is the collaboration idea that you would like to accomplish with the SoundCloud community?
I think it would be fun to record and compile people’s favorite memories of growing up in the Milwaukee area, but I’m definitely open to other ideas.
What is your favorite place in the city and why?
I love the shores of Lake Michigan. There’s something about the vast expanse of open water that clears my mind and inspires me to write songs.
What is your favorite sound and why?
For me, there’s no better sound than a great pop song, especially that first listen. Sometimes, I wish I could forget all my favorite songs so I could hear them again for the first time.
