About

Hello! I'm Megan - thanks for visiting my blog Cool Music And Things - I hope that I can introduce you to some brilliant new music through my posts. I'm 23, based in Peterborough, a graduate in English Literature and Communication, Media & Culture (Oxford Brookes University) and currently work as a bookseller. Here's me with some of my favourite artists... points for telling me who they all are!

I set up the original version of this blog a few years ago on Tumblr to write about the music I love, sharing new tracks and videos there with small posts. I initially started blogging as I realised that I was constantly recommending music to my friends and family and thought it would be fun to have a platform through which to do this on a wider scale, hopefully helping out the artists whose music I enjoy along the way.  In May 2015 I met the bassist of one of my favourite bands, told him that I had a blog and was given a copy of his solo record to review - this was the key moment which pushed me to make a "proper" go of the blog, moving it onto Blogger and acquiring my own URL. The response so far has been amazing having recently reached 550 likes on Facebook and over 125,000 all time views on the blog itself.

The blog is incredibly personal - all the posts are written by me so it's a bit of a stream-of-consciousness journal style ramble about the music I love. I'd like to think that my passion for music comes across through the posts. The kind of posts that you can expect are recommendations, new videos, single and album announcements, sessions, gig and tour announcements and the odd review.

Unless they're my own images from gigs etc, I try my best to add credit to other photos, but if I forget to please let me know and I'll amend the posts.
