The title of this new column is somewhat ironic, as I have no actual office.  My “desk” is more often than not my cluttered kitchen table.  I’m sure the scene is much the same for many of our writers.  See, The Record Rebellion is run/written by people scattered all over North America and Europe.  We’re a bunch of music and arts nerds who managed to meet and create something to share our passion for it all.  Some of us have a background in the music industry, others are fans, others are seeking a career in the business.  But regardless of our personal histories, we all love talking about music and film while geeking out over our latest discoveries.  If you can identify with that at all, welcome home.

To that end, I’m excited about the artists we’ve been able to profile lately.  If you haven’t seen yet, we have Burbank CA’s Back Pocket Memory guest blogging with us for the next month.  They’re hilarious dudes and their music rocks.  They’ll be releasing a new EP this summer, so make sure to check them out!

We also recently got to sit down with a couple of legends – Jason Cruz of Strung Out and Chuck Ragan of Hot Water Music fame.  Both have a lot of experience under their belts, so hearing their viewpoints on the way their respective scenes have developed was awesome.

One of our former guest-bloggers, Jimmy Pianka from Arrow to the Sun, wrote a great piece on coming of age in present times and how it’s influenced his band’s lyrical content.  We love those guys and we’re very proud to call them friends.

Personally, I had a great time interviewing Sam Bradley, a folk-rock singer/guitarist from Canada by way of London, England.  His show is a blast and he was both insightful and hilarious during our chat, so don’t miss it!

There’s a lot more great stuff in the works for the spring and summer so I hope you’ll stay tuned!

We’re always looking for more folks who share our passions to join The Record Rebellion team.  If you’d like to get involved with our ragtag bunch of merry dudes and dudettes (or ladydudes, as writer Jared Bowers would say), drop me a line at alicia<at>

Have a great weekend!  Catch you next week.

Keep Calm and Rock On,
