I was born to rock’n'roll. (Or at least to write a music blog.)

No really.

My parents named me after a Beatles’ album and famous recording studio. As a toddler, I loved to bang away on my highchair when AC/DC was on. At the age of 10 (upon witnessing the parking lot) I told my Dad “I want to be a Deadhead when I grow up.” I have dreamed of running away with the band for as long as I can remember. I’m at concerts more nights than not.

I am a Seattle Native and a fan of just about everything related to my hometown. Above all, I love the music that’s being made here, the people who are making it and the community that surrounds it. With bands and artists like Damien Jurado, Fleet Foxes, The Moondoggies, The Maldives, The Head and The Heart, David Bazan, Grand Hallway, Lemolo, Bryan John Appley, The Cave Singers, Shabazz Palaces, Night Beats, Pickwick, Widower, Curtains for You, The Lonely Forest, Beat Connection and I could go on for paragraphs… calling Seattle home, we’re blessed to be a part of the most vibrant music scene in the country. And I wouldn’t trade my Seattle experience or bands with any other city in the country world.
