My name is Patricia Trutescu, and I am the creator of this blog, Music Historian. I interview singer-songwriters from all corners of the country. I learn about their motivation – what drives them to make music and share it with the world – and turn these conversations into thoughtful and intelligent articles.
Why did I choose to call this blog Music Historian? I have a degree in Music History from Syracuse University. While I spent time in the classroom studying the history of classical music in the Western world, partaking in ethnographic research of music in today’s landscape, and understanding music theory; I also played piano and rhythm guitar in a University ensemble, sang in the women’s choir, continued my study classical piano (which I have been doing since 12 years of age), and participated in a cover band on campus.
Since graduating from SU, I have gained 5+ years of work experience (please see my LinkedIn profile for more information). During this time, I have pursued Masters in Marketing from the Zicklin School of Business. To keep my love of music history alive, I created Music Historian, which has now been up for 8 years. My purpose for writing is to bring great articles about today’s independent music to music lovers as both an ethnographer and a reviewer. I have spoken with alternative rock group, Imagine Dragons; New Zealand-native indetronica group, The Naked and Famous; and many more.
