Update: Hey there! As of December 2023, DC is in full hibernation-mode. It's over folks, at least for now. If you're curious, you can read the text below to see what used to be the message on this page.
This site is managed by me, Nathan. Thanks for stopping by.
Though I have been writing about music for a number of years, it has been a lifelong love affair. From dancing to old LPs in the living room of my childhood home, to festival-hopping in my 20's, and now valuing close listening in quiet environments, consuming and appreciating a wide variety of music has been a constant in my life. I am so grateful to be able to maintain this site and share sounds with you now.
I am based in Portland, Oregon, and have reported on the local music scene for a handful of widely-read publications. Commissions aside, this blog-turned-website has been my own creative outlet for the past six years. Since I am a full-time middle school teacher, DC is a passion project, but one that I care about very much.
If you feel like reaching out regarding new releases, concert/festival coverage, interviews, feature pieces, collaborations, commissions, or simply to chat, please navigate to the "Contact" page up top. And thank you, once again, for taking the time to explore this space.
