GENRE IS DEAD! was founded in May 2017 by long-time music writer Melissa Wilke. Instead of focussing on one genre of music, GID publishes news, interviews, reviews and more about all kinds of music - whatever makes our heart dance/rock/pop etc. 

Send inquiries regarding press, music submissions and advertising to contact@genreisdead.com - we offer all banner sizes, sponsored posts, especially in our categories "Sound of the Underground" and "Discover New Music". 

We are looking for writers, photographers and graphic artists to help us out. If you're interested, message us at contact@genreisdead.com


Melissa Wilke

Chief Editor
I’ve been blogging for 7 years on several websites and started working as a freelance writer for music magazines in 2013. My favourite bands/artists are Green Day, Enter Shikari, Linkin Park, Marmozets, SWMRS, Lana del Rey, Paramore, Foo Fighters, Nirvana and too many more to list them all

Linda Köke

I'm Linda, a Dutch 23 year old music lover from the Netherlands. I studied Art History and besides music I spend the majority of my time going to art exhibits, galleries or writing about art and culture on my personal blog. I love to travel, especially to my favourite country the United Kingdom. My favourite bands are Enter Shikari, Muse and Biffy Clyro.

Ashley Perez Hollingsworth

I am a freelance writer based in Chicago. I currently write for AXS, Reality-Comics, and Chicago Music. My work has appeared on The Millions, The Crypt 1331, and New City. I also run my own music blog at Radio Not Found. When I'm not writing, I enjoy a good book, hitting up the hottest concerts, and logging in several hours on Fallout 4.

Jana Shugaova

I am a music enthusiast living in the city of Prague. Before joining GID, I have blogged about music and contributed to a local magazine. In my free time, I enjoy playing guitar, travelling or a good book.

Anouk Stumpf

This 27 year old Dutchie loves traveling, reading, learning new skills, photography and music! I studied graphic design and event management, and in my free time I like to read, listen to music, find new friends and be creative in all sorts of ways!

Janine Halcyon

Heya, I´m Janine! A 27 year old girl from Germany! There are 3 things that I´m obsessed with: 1. My dog Sheela 2. Enter Shikari 3. Series I love to walk around with Sheela and sometimes just enjoy the natural silence in the woods. The other thing I enjoy is the complete opposite: Gigs! Mostly Enter Shikari, as they are my fave band for 10 years now! And besides all that what (basically) everyone loves: just sit down on the couch, relax and watch a good series. And what´s the most important thing to know about me: I´m literally just as crazy about music like you! 😀

Thomas Eger

I've been working in music/concert photogaphy since 2009. It all started with my passion for live music and quickly became more than that when I started taking some photos at shows. In my daily life I'm an IT specialist but you rarely meet me without my headphones or music coming through my speakers.
