I've been involved with music promotion, marketing, public relations, merchandising, & web development since 1998. Have worked with various genre musicians, bands, indie labels, as well as non-music companies and individuals for nearly 20 years. While this is not my main income gig (actually zero income), this is my main passion.
I started Riff Relevant due to being choked to tears by music genre elitists stifling creativity within categories, coupled with an incessant need to share all the music I love, regardless of genre specifications. I'm a code geek, music addict, art lover, live music show attendee, freelance writer, photo taker, editor, smirker, & sharer of all that is heavy music.
I've collected vinyl records & all other music formats since childhood. At the age of 10, I caused a 1" tear on an inner sleeve & got some dog hair on my older brother's 'Diary Of A Madman' record ('ruined', per him). I've ridden that hate trolley ever since.
Yes, I double space between sentences. Yes, I use the Oxford comma. I also have a crush on ampersands. I will continue the fight for the rights of obscure punctuation & defend my Island of Misfit Music Writers. Come at me, bro.
