The List: Interviews & Articles

I became a freelance writer after many kind friends and family members encouraged me to “really try to publish this stuff.” My journey was rapid – from answering an ad in a local newspaper to publishing a multi-part series on a leading website in a matter of months – and I know these sorts of things don’t usually work out so quickly, or so well. I’m almost apologetic about that, and I marvel at the blessing of this little pastime of mine and its serendipitous connection of two of my profound interests: music and writing.

I forget exactly when, but not long after my first interview my wife looked at me and said, “You’re living your dream.” The lists below are a little memory book of my dream. These are artists and groups I’ve interviewed, followed by a list of articles for which I could find links.
