I've been remiss about updating this space for various reasons (did someone say pandemic burnout? Maybe), so here's a rundown of my most recent publications.

CHRCH Tour Is Bringing The Doom
I recently learned about CHRCH while covering their impending (now current) West Coast tour. If you like esoteric doom metal, this band might be right up your alley. Learn more in my recent TUBE. Magazine article.
