Open Mic/Ask Me Anything
It’s time for another Open Mic/AMA!
A lot of new faces have joined us since the last time we did one of these (hey there!), so I thought it might be fun to do again.
One of the great things about this platform is the direct line between writer & reader. There’s no algorithm and therefore no need to bend one’s writing to appease one. It also provides space for writers to check in with everyone. I intentionally don’t run ads here, which means this entire project is fueled by paid subscriptions and word of mouth.
This is an AMA, but also a pulse check. I genuinely want to hear what’s on your mind!
Even better is when connections between readers start to form. You may have noticed that the comment section here has really come to life over the last few months. I certainly have, and I couldn’t be happier to see it. This is a smart, curious community happy to share their knowledge and ask questions of one another.
So, ask me anything you want about music (or even non-music questions)! Either reply to this email or leave a comment, and I’ll be back in a few days to answer some of them.
In the meantime, here are a couple of questions for you:
What would you like me to write about? Have a record you’d like me to review? A specific artist? How about something off menu? Is there anything you want to see more of here? Less of?
All suggestions welcome, no matter how offbeat.
Another one of my favorite things about Substack is that it gives projects like this room to take the twists and turns that other platforms might not. We should take advantage of that.
All questions/comments/rants/raves welcome. Hot takes, too.
Thanks for being here,
