Reviewing new music is a much bigger job than you might expect, especially for those of us with a family. So, I’m very pleased to announce that Daniel Hay, known to some as The 10th Doctor of Prog, will be collaborating with me in 2016. We both feel like it will be beneficial to us to join forces here. You’ll see Daniel reviewing and possibly interviewing as well. He’ll be a great help to Justin and I, and hopefully we will be a help to him, as well. I know that we definitely need a bit more cynicism around here, too. Anyways, here is a little bit about him.
“I am a 19-year-old mechanical engineering student from the distant island colony on the other side of the world known as New Zealand. I have been a big fan of progressive music since I was 14, and have been writing reviews since I was 16, on my own progressive music Facebook blog called The Exoskeletal Junction (formerly known from 2012-15 as The 10th Doctor of Prog).
Outside of reviewing, I spend an unnecessarily large amount of time watching cricket (the progressive rock of sports), and have my own band called The Dark Third.
Some of my favourite artists include Porcupine Tree, Anathema, Alcest, Opeth, Leprous and Marillion.
I hope you enjoy Daniel’s incoming reviews! Oh, and, yes, I’m always looking for new reviewers, even if it’s just for a short amount of time. If you want to try your hand at it, feel free to send me a message on the Contact Us page.
