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.

Mike Heath
Features Editor

LOCATION: Milton Keynes, UK

FAVOURITE GENRES: Punk Rock, Hardcore, Ska

BRIEF BIO: A love of both live and recorded music drove me to DEAD PRESS! as a reviewer back in 2012, so that I could bug a wider audience about my opinions on it and get into even more gigs and festivals than I did before. The Features Editor role will allow me to creatively expand the site as much as possible and continue the great work that DEAD PRESS! has delivered since day one.
