Jeff Smith is an avid music fan Brooklyn, NY. In 2012 he started creating playlists to send to friends and colleagues on Spotify. After his an overwhelming praise for his first “Hipsurfishing” playlist, he was persuaded into growing the brand. Jeff currently runs the music blog Hipsurfishing.com, where he conducts reviews and interviews. Over the years he has searched high and wide for new musical talents, attending hundreds of shows in the New York City area as well as events throughout the country including South by Southwest, CMJ and Bonnaroo. If he’s not checking out the newest unknown musicians you can find him on the slopes, hitting the links, or wiggling like a noodle at the next Phish concert.
