Who Am I?

I am 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 the name 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 by study classical piano – which I have been doing since 12 years of age and continue to practice in my spare time – 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 the Music Historian, which just turned 4 last October. My purpose for Music Historian is to bring great articles about today’s independent music to music lovers as both an ethnographer and a critic. I have spoken with alternative rock group, Imagine Dragons; reggae artist, Tarrus Riley; calypso king, The Mighty Sparrow; New Zealand-native indetronica group, The Naked and Famous; and many more.
