Music Runs The City


If you haven't noticed yet, this is a music blog. It is filled with news, concert reviews, music events and new music I'm currently into.

I'm a Chicago native and I am currently studying music business at Columbia College Chicago.

I work at one of the most amazing venues in the city which is House of Blues Chicago and intern with Live Nation.

I am a former GRAMMY Camp participant from 2010. Since camp, I continue to work with The GRAMMY Foundation.

Last year I got to work at Lollapalooza on one of the main stages where I was literally inches away from Dave Grohl.

"Dave told me this awesome thing about L.A. He says the whole town is like this blank canvas, and whatever you bring to it, that’s what it is. It’s just this random collection of neighbourhoods where it’s always sunny and it basically reflects whereever you’re at back at you. So if you’re happy, L.A. is great. If you’re not, L.A. sucks. But it has nothing to do with Los Angeles. Because, get this, there’s no such thing!"
