In Alphabetical Order…
Musician and journalist based in Boston, MA. Writing about music does a lot of heavy lifting for my personality. Grateful to be living right inside one of the best local music scenes. I do a lot of work with the Hassle’s calendar.
Freelance music journalist and editor based in Allston. Big fan of The Fall-esque speak-singing and new wave basslines.
