I have been a music journalist for over a year now, and I thoroughly enjoy it.
Being able to hear so much new music from a wide variety of artists and bands is fantastic. It’s always great to see what releases are coming next.
I’ve found that being able to support and promote smaller artists who are trying to grow is my favourite part. Being able to discover talent from small bands, some from my local area and help to give them a voice through my reviews is brilliant.
Most recently I attended a gig in Chester. Local progressive metal band White Mammoth performed supported by hard rock band, Nights Tribunal. Not only was I able to review the event, but I also had the opportunity to interview White Mammoth. The guys were all lovely to chat to and their performance was fantastic!
The responses I have had from band members are fantastic. It makes me incredibly happy to know that bands appreciate my reviews and the publicity I can give them from it.
