Of course I don't always hear it first. That's just a catchy title given by a friend. But I do see a lot of shows, and I do get a lot of music sent to me. And I like to write. So I write. In a different pre internet reality, if I were paid to write about music and assigned pieces to cover, I would write about a wide variety of entertainment. But this is a labor of love, so full discloser: you will never see a negative hit piece here. I want to elevate and support music that appeals to me. There is enough negativity in the world. Conversely, if I don't write about your show or album, that does not mean I don't like it. I respect all who toil in the business of music. But time is limited, and I have stuff to do. And who asked me anyway?
I hope you can find something here that inspires you to go out and hear some music, purchase it directly from the artists you want to support, and make yourself part of the healing community of music.
