Live on Tidal

Music Streaming service TIDAL has launched Live, a new in-app feature for HiFi and HiFi Plus TIDAL subscribers to share live music remotely. 

Live allows listeners to come together as groups for a special event, an album release, road trip, or a get-ready-with-me moment.

From TIDAL: “Through music, we are giving fans a way to connect with each other or with other creators, brands, and personalities through simple, one-click sharing”

Live is a new way for fans to share the music they love in-the-moment. This new option makes it easy and convenient for fans to also find and follow music tastemakers. 

How To Get Started

To start a Live session, TIDAL subscribers can choose the session name to set the tone for what they’re playing and share a link for others to join. Shareable links to Live sessions let anyone join – from text messages and social media to emails.

TIDAL Curators

The key to providing music selections and organization of each music genre is TIDAL’s team of music curators. Some Live on TIDAL Curators include:


Brad Farberman: Jazz 

  • Vibe: soul-jazz, jazz-funk, avant-garde jazz
  • Bio: Brad has done work in immersive audio and legacy programming at TIDAL, however, he is also a music scribe whose work has appeared in the New York Times, the Village Voice, JazzTimes, and more. He has also served as an editor at Genius and an editorial assistant at Wax Poetics.
  • Brad’s perspective on the key to a great set is: “storytelling. I love when a set starts off big and ends on a mellow note, showcasing the peaks and valleys of an artist or genre.”

Evan Haga: Rock/Indie

He has also written for NPR Music, Rolling Stone, the Baltimore Sun, Vinyl Me, Please, Living Blues, and Jazz at Lincoln Center.
  • Evan’s perspective on the key to a great set is: “striking a balance between the comfort of familiar sounds and the thrill of discovery.”

  • Bio: Gabriel is from the U.K. and currently lives in New York. He was Boiler Room’s Senior Curator and an editorial staffer for Red Bull Music Academy and Resident Advisor. He has also been a  contributor to Pitchfork, The Guardian, Billboard, and other outlets. He’s currently finishing his first book, After Daft, on 21st-century dance music and Daft Punk. 
  • Gabriel’s perspective on the key to a great set is: “to start strong, know how you’ll eventually wind down to a classy stop, and watch out for tempo leaps song-to-song — then just go with the flow.”
