Title
Editor-in-Chief | Indie Current
Bio
As Editor-in-Chief of the Canadian-based independent music blog and YouTube collective, Indie Current, my duties include everything from writing reviews to handling the day-to-day operations. In just under five years, I have amassed a following of over 100,000 followers on social media (Facebook, Twitter, YouTube) and driven millions of visitors to my website and YouTube channel. In that time, I have also established relationships with a number of labels, PR agencies and blogs, to become a well-respected voice in the independent music scene. With a background in Economics and Finance, I am able to provide business advice to any interested parties, while my understanding of public relations and promotion gives me an edge over my fellow bloggers.

While I'm preferential to indie-rock and electronic music, I frequent a number of different genres and styles. On occasion, I have been known to feature hip-hop artists; however, my affinity for a fully-realized pop song takes precedence. If you want to find the secret to my heart, I suggest you keep your submission short and sweet; it goes without saying that you should also include a link to your SoundCloud or YouTube profile, because nothing's worse than having to download your mixtape from DatPiff (as much as I appreciate their services).
