I live for art in all forms, without the arts I would most likely not have the ability to wake up each morning with the joie de vivre that encompasses my entire being; however, there is no art form with as great a value to me as music. I am a music enthusiast. This blog is firstly, for the use of my high school journalism class, but more importantly— to express all that I can on the new music of the every day. On this blog I will be posting updates on the new work and upcoming events of various contemporary bands. It will also consist of reviews of newly released albums and singles, as well as music videos, each week. On rare occasion, I may even include reviews of live performances and if at all possible, I will even be posting interviews I have conducted with some of the bands. My hopes for this blog are that it will be a way for anyone who reads it to discover new bands to add to their personal playlists. So…. welcome to the Music Box.
