Hello! I'm Megan (she/her) - thanks so much for visiting my blog. As well as being a full time music lover... I currently work as a bookseller and volunteer online for a wildlife charity. I studied English Literature & Media at university, and I've worked as the community manager of a music-tech company (helping to put on shows in Oxford, London and beyond) and as a PR intern for Chalk Press Agency. I hope that I can introduce you to some brilliant new artists and music through my posts!

A little cool music and things history... I set up the original version of this blog on Tumblr in 2012. I initially started blogging as I realised that I was constantly recommending music to my friends and family and thought that it would be fun to have a platform through which to do this on a wider scale, maybe even 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 I had a music blog and was given a copy of his solo record to review. This specific moment sparked something, and pushed me to make a go of the blog, moving the site to Blogger and getting my own URL. The rest is... history. (And a lot of hard work.)

The response over the past few years has been amazing. It's my creative outlet and the place that I can go to tell people just how brilliant my favourite artists are. 

The blog is incredibly personal - every post has been written by me, so it reads as a bit of a stream-of-consciousness journal style ramble about the music I love. I'd like to hope that my passion for music comes across through the posts - of which you can expect recommendations, new videos, single and album announcements, sessions, gig and tour news and the odd review. 

Things are a little sporadic at the moment - the blog is very much a passion project, working alongside some other big commitments. Trying my best to keep things up here, and appreciate anybody who stops by to read something and discover some new music!
