Editor, President (Toronto, ON, Canada)
- Hey all, I’ve been the President of PureGrainAudio since it started all the way back in the early spring of 2005. What started as a hobby to help expose myself to some new music has turned into pretty much a second job. I love rock music, particularly alternative and hard rock, but mostly I just love good music. It could be blues rock, acoustic, classic, it just has to be good!
