I'm a professional writer, editor, and music journalist with extensive experience in musical review. I worked for two years as the editor-in-chief of an arts magazine, Strike Magazine, where I worked closely with writers and musicians. Through this, I was able to interact with dozens of acts including Heart, Holly Williams, Robert Cray, John Hiatt, and more. The magazine printed thousands of issues and was even recognized by Rolling Stone's founder, Jann Wenner!
After Strike, I worked as a professional writing tutor and editor. So, you can rest assured my writing will always be of the highest quality! I've also worked as a critic for an array of music publications.
A $5 gig will receive a 400 word review. (Please limit an album to six songs or less.)
Orders will be delivered in a professional, high quality PDF unless the Independent Spotlight extra is ordered.
I also provide press releases and interviews!
I take great pride in the journalistic integrity of the gig. I will always pen an honest and authentic review of your music. I will always respect your art as well, but may voice constructive criticism as necessary. This is a professional review that digs *deep* into your work!
You will receive your order as a professionally formatted PDF for your own distribution.
Yes! I’ve worked for clients over the last several years that make every type of music imaginable - hip hop, experimental, rock and roll, folk, classical, avant garde - you name it! I don't shy away from any musical style or genre. I've dug deep into it all.
Yes! Please message me before placing an order and we’ll figure out a reasonable price for your album or collection.
No, no, no, and no. Please don’t message me about that kind of work. I provide honest, articulate work for artists on a budget. I’m not here to leave fake Yelp reviews for you!
Yes! I’m commissioned regularly to write song synopsis for distribution, biographies, and more. If you need a one-sheet, I also work on those occasionally. (I’m a graphic designer as well.) See my Fiverr profile for my press release and interview gigs if that's what you're looking for!
