Pickwick

Every time I open my email there is a new newsletter from some random site I’ve never clicked on. Sometimes they pertain to things I enjoy – Pickwick signing with Dine Alone Records – but there are times when sending items to the junk box before opening is necessary.

Public Records

Public Records is the perfect resource for independent artists. The website will help artists sell their music – giving them more of the profits than a label – and the blog helps to promote artists.

Ronan

This is the Taylor Swift I was expecting. “Ronan” is soft and beautiful, touching the hearts of everyone. This shows a maturity in her writing, and makes the previously released single look silly and juvenile. It also begs a huge question on how this album will sound. Her voice is even getting better, she struggled a […]
