About The Author
I’ve grown up loving music. I always have felt that I have a good head on my shoulders, and a decent taste in what is good and what is bad, and all the things in between. Growing up, I had a certain few bands I listened to, but I always was looking for that new, exciting, and different band that had something new to offer. Now, with all the music that comes out in a single year, it can be hard to weed through all the crap and filth to find a shining beacon of hope and uniqueness. I hope that as you read some of my reviews you will see a certain uniqueness in the bands I choose to support and subsequently, not support.
I have been writing CD reviews for the past 6 years now, starting in 2004 at the popular Christian music website JesusFreakHideout.com. After work and school became more of a burden, I ultimately left the site and stopped reviewing for a few months. But I realized that now that I wasn’t restricted to certain albums, and that I was free to review whatever I liked (or didn’t like).
What you will see here will likely focus on Christian bands many times, but that is simply because certain Christian bands don’t get as much of a push as they sometimes deserve. What you will also see here is mainstream, secular reviews of bands I choose to listen to, and I will say up front that there is literally nothing I do not listen to. One day you might see a death metal band reviewed while another week goes by and you are appalled that I have reviewed the latest pop album. I realize that there is an infinite possibility for music and musical genre, and therefore I do not wish to see myself cut anyone off.
Originally from the small town of Easton, Pennsylvania, I currently attend Visible School Music and Worship Arts College in downtown Memphis, Tennessee. I am studying to earn a degree in Music Business, and I hope to use that degree to become a professional writer and promoter. For more information on the school, please visit www.visible.edu. I am also getting to know the city of Memphis and all that it has to offer the ever-growing music industry.
Some of my main influences and favorite bands can be seen on the “Music That Moves Me” page, if you are so interested. Along with my reviews, I will try to update this site at least once a week, with a new review or article on the current state of the music industry, or a band that I find particularly interesting. I hope you enjoy reading, and be sure to check back often.
