SoundCloud Voices is a weekly Community feature focusing on new spoken word creators found on SoundCloud. It might be a podcast, radio show, audio book, interview, audio messages, a poem, anything! Keep an eye out every Thursday for a new post.
What up y’all? Another week, another post on some of the spoken word activity on SoundCloud. You may have noticed our post about 5 million users yesterday with the ThingLink infographic and the likes of Foo Fighters, donuts, birds and our new addition - Ashton Kutcher? If no, allow us to use it as a segway to this week’s topic - famous people talking, in a variety of forms.
So Ashton Kutcher has been using SoundCloud for just under a month now, take a listen to a recording of him reciting a poem, written by his father.
Next up is Bjork, who hasn’t uploaded a single piece of music to SoundCloud yet, rather using it as a way to explain her forthcoming album and some of the ideas and influences surrounding the project. Here’s a brief talk about the iPad.
And finally, Ziggy Marley! Not using SoundCloud himself but hosted by Explore Music a new web and radio service dedicated to music discovery from Canada. Here show host Alan Cross interviews Ziggy on a number of interesting topics. Take a look at Explore Music’s profile for more great interviews.
