I’m an English Creative Writing major and Journalism minor at Loyola University Chicago.

Lastly, I try to dedicate a lot of my time to social justice work and activism.

(she/they) I'm a 20 year old biology student at the University of Vienna and spend every free minute listening to music, reading about music or writing about it. I love finding new music (somewhat proud creator of 200+ playlists), reviewing records and shows, and getting to talk to people about the stories behind their records and anything else I can think of.
Nice to meet, hope y’all are enjoying the shows as much as we are! I’m a 20 year-old writer-hopeful from Charlotte, NC, now studying journalism up in New Jersey, with a minor in rock n’ roll! I grew up in between the city and all that country-bumpkinness you can expect from the South, but that’s never stopped us from picking each other up and pushing for a greener, meaner, and more accepting tomorrow. Y’know what they say, man, the revolution will be televised, but not before we bring you the soundtrack.

Hey! I’m Tuana. I’m a 20-year-old student currently living in Istanbul. I love photography, cinema, graphic design, and of course..music! My pretentiousness in high school led me to be a last.fm user, discover underground artists, and follow the music magazines. I spent most of my money on film festivals and concerts. I love both graphic design and music so I am so happy and excited to be illustrating for a music magazine! Some of my favorite artists are Big Thief, Sleater-Kinney and Elliott Smith.
Giliann Karon is a Washington DC based writer and self-described "Tumblr veteran."

She's committed to using digital media to continue elevating emerging artists and foster engaged online communities. When she's not at a concert, she can be found rustling through the produce selection at her local farmer's market.

İnci is a 20-year-old architecture student at Middle East Technical University, Turkey. Learning things, expressing herself, creating art, listening to music, arguing about movies are some ways that make her soul fulfilled.

She is either with friends laughing or alone in her room studying, reading.

Abby Utley eats, sleeps and breathes music.
She makes her smoothies using guitar strings and a drumstick. She counts piano keys to go to sleep because her biggest fear is becoming a sheep. She likes seeing live shows because she’s inhaling the same air as her favorite artists through her nose.
Abby is someone who likes to lose herself in music. She believes music is one of the most powerful and inclusive art forms to exist. She will certainly spend the rest of her life exploring its fascinating versatility.
