BRIEF BIO: This site is the fruit of my labour, which originally began as a portfolio of my work before I gradually began recruiting contributors over time. In August 2010, I formed DEAD PRESS! into a fully fledged music news and reviews site, and with my drive and Music Journalism degree behind me I aim to push DEAD PRESS! into becoming the one-stop source for music news and information for the world over.

BRIEF BIO: After beginning to write about music at university, I decided to branch out a little further and thankfully landed a spot as a reviewer for DEAD PRESS! in early 2011. Now with a position as News Editor, I hope to use my skills to enchance DEAD PRESS!’s status as one of the fastest growing and reliable webzines out there, as well as ranting and raving about the music I love and loathe.

BRIEF BIO: This is my second stint at writing for DEAD PRESS! now, and I’m probably one of the more regular contributors you’ll find on here, and the one who is more often than not reviewing the heavier bands and releases we cover. To date I’ve seen around 400+ bands live and met many others countless times, including the lovely Lights as you can see in my profile photo. In my spare time I am also putting on touring bands in Manchester at various venues. It should also be noted that I have a slightly unhealthy obsession with Lights, Hayley Williams and Cassadee Pope.
Below, you’ll find a list of all our current contributors and what they do to make DEAD PRESS! the site that it is. Though it’d be impossible to list every contributor who has been with us in the past, we’d like to thank any help anyone has ever provided to us in any way.
