Since February of 2012, I have been writing essays on music for the Hudson Valley Almanac Weekly, a culture insert in three or four weekly papers in New York’s Mid-Hudson valley as well as a Web publication. The only requirement of the articles is that they deal in some way with a local/regional artist, event, or venue. Beyond that, the expressive latitude I have been given surprises even me.
I may eventually start blogging here, but for now all the action will be located in the one sticky post: Music Articles. That’s where I will keep adding links.
I am also a working musician, a songwriter and guitarist in the band The Sweet Clementines, a guitarist in Pelican Movement, Pecas, The Trapps, Mark Donato’s band and Ratboy and an occasional live or studio sideman for a variety of others.
I offer my services as writer of band bios, press releases and ancillary materials. I have extensive experience in general interest writing, business and marketing writing in numerous verticals, web content, multimedia writing, and much more. For writing services, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
