Journalist (Tisbury, Wiltshire, England)
- I have been writing creatively for as long as I can remember; writing whimsical fantasies and cut-throat horror before I found my calling to review the wonderful world of music. I love all sorts of music - rock, metal, punk, country, jazz, even some 90s pop - and on my hard drive it is hard for others to contemplate such an eclectic collection all gathered together on digital media.
