to the profiles
What's the point of it?
Well, for the past few years, I've been writing band profiles and interviews for The Omaha Reader, Omaha's alternative news, arts, and music newspaper. And while everything looks great in print, often the artists and label reps (not to mention anyone outside the Omaha area) rarely see the stories because they don't receive tear sheets.
It's not my fault...Anyway, at least once a week or so, I'll post a new profile or interview from a national or local indie artist. Hey, look at what I've done so far...
The cover story (3/17/10):
Singer/songwriter Holly Miranda doesn't want to talk about her past.
So where did her music come from? You won't find out here, because Miranda didn't respond to questions about how she reportedly grew up in a strict, religious home, sneaking listens to her sister's contraband records. Or questions about how those religious rituals influenced her songwriting. Or how she fled her suburban Detroit home at age 16 to start her life again in New York City.
