Greetings from 2019!: An Overview

>> Hello, hello! Greetings from 2019! This lil blog hasn't been updated in well over a year and it was time to change that. I have no idea how often I'll update this going forward, but figured I'd start with an update on where life has taken me on my adventures in music.

>> Currently, I'm working at Fearless Records which is a dream come true. I run the socials for the label and do a lot more as half of the digital marketing team. If you've read any classic post from this blog, you'll know I used to street team for Fearless and review virtually all of the releases... so it's pretty sweet that I get to be a part of those releases on the label side now. I also get to work with a few unsigned artists in my spare time, including Patent Pending and Makeshift. It's the best of all worlds.

>> This blog started in 2008 as a fun way to keep track of and share the music that inspired me. Looking back eleven years later, it was the beginning of my wild journey in this wild industry. From writer to publicist to digital marketer to some combination of the three, I wouldn't change a thing. 

>> I recently started a small thread on Twitter where I've been highlighting awesome artists - mostly friends, all worth hearing - and that inspired this return to ye olde Music Obsession. I suppose the goal as of now is to start using this platform again to highlight the incredibly talented artists in my life and see if it grows from there. My inbox still gets flooded with daily press releases - which I love, don't get me wrong - but if you have a passion project that deserves a spotlight, let me know. And if you see this post, tweet me a hell yeah or something.
