“There is always magic to be summoned at any point. I love to live in a world of magic, but not a fake world of magic. We all really basically have a lot of magic. It’s only those of us who choose to accept it, that really understand it. It’s there for everyone. That’s the only thing that I feel I am able to give to people and that’s why I know that they respond to me because I try to give them only their own magic: not mine, but theirs.”
This year, with all of its ups and downs, twists and turns, and unexpected joys, has been one of my absolute best. It’s hard to explain the elation I felt when I began writing for one of my all-time favorite publications, Consequence of Sound, with album reviews that truly challenged me. I wrote my first piece for Performer Magazine, which appears both in print and archived online. I’ve continued my role as the Music Editor at Third Coast Review, and I’ve gotten to work with so many talented writers, photographers, press contacts, and venue staffers.
With a day job that allows me to write about travel day in and day out, increasing my wanderlust immensely, and the ability to discuss music for a variety of platforms, I’m looking forward to what the rest of this year has in store.
