After traveling through Haiti to study folkloric music, she has a continuing interest in music of all genres and locales. One thing is for sure -- Macdonald knows music.

"Music has always been the most important thing in my life," said Macdonald. "As a performer I have witnessed first hand how hard it can be for artists to be seen and heard. I am so excited to be part of the BTR team bringing independent music to new audiences."

"Music for music lovers," is BTR's motto, and one that Macdonald and all of the staff at BTR takes very seriously. In a world where independent music is becoming more and more accessible, the need for select sources to filter the best is a necessity. Macdonald is intent on finding the best independent music from all across the world to showcase to the already 4 million listeners. She sifts through the library with her finger on the pulse of new music while keeping in mind the quality that BTR has already been acquainted with.
