I’ve developed a habit of self-reflection over the past few weeks; it may be a side effect of the intense change I’ve had in just about every aspect of my life. For me, the past two weeks have been just that: I spent time thinking If you know me personally, you know that my family … More Something Personal: Looking Ahead to 2019
Just a heads-up: this post is probably the cheesiest, so I’ll keep it brief. Yesterday was my 19th birthday. I’m not a big fan of my own birthdays – it’s just another day, after all, and I don’t love being the center of attention – but the past two years have not been the easiest, … More Something Personal: 19 Things I’ve Learned in 19 Years
If you’ve been following either my personal social media or Indientry’s at all for the past month, you’re well aware of the fact that two weeks ago I moved down to Athens, Ohio for college.

July and August are shaping up to be equally chaotic, but I’m hoping to stay on top of the blog better by planning ahead. … More Something Personal: Looking Forward

This past Thanksgiving, but there was a strange sense of bittersweet loss hovering near South Front Street. Last weekend, Columbus music venue Double Happiness hosted its last shows before closing its doors permanently. Double Happiness was a special place.

Two years ago today, I wrote my first ever album review for Indientry. Yes, it was a review of Twenty One Pilots, but I’ve since branched out from the “mainstream”. Since July of 2015, I’ve published nearly 200 posts, including interviews with my some of my favorite musicians, reviews of my favorite albums, and me gushing … More Indientry Turns 2!
