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.

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.

Marissa Gutierrez

Writer / Video Editor
Hello! I'm from California and am currently in my third year of undergrad for a bachelors degree in Media Arts Design and Technology alongside minors in Gender and Sexuality Studies, Instructional Design, and Photography. While I'm not busy with school or work, I'm most likely doing something that revolves around two of my greatest passions in life: music and photography. And that's why I'm here, to merge these two passions. You can find me in the pit at a nearby live show. Some of my favorite artists include Neck Deep, SWMRS, State Champs, All Time Low, With Confidence and many many more!

Some of my favourite artists are Linkin Park, Ed Sheeran, Papa Roach, Evanescence, Ólafur Arnalds and many more!

Thomas Eger

Photographer (Germany)
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.

Alessia Antonelli

I am an Italian girl and currently studying Linguistic Mediation at university. I really love listening to music, going to concerts, taking photos and everything related to art and self-expression. My favorite bands are Green Day, Linkin Park, Paramore and Incubus.
