My name is Jason Spencer. I am the founder, editor, and writer for The Prog Mind, and I also handle the various social media outlets. There have been other writers here in the past, but it has been years, so I thought it was time to clear out old data.
The PROG Mind was started to explore the lyrical side of progressive music. While this is primarily a site about progressive music, I like to cover any music that I enjoy or that I consider ambitious and artistic. You will therefore see everything from rock and metal to electronica and pop to deeper subgenres like blackgaze, doom, folk, or even film and video game scores. Basically, I review and support what I like.
I love writing. I guess you could call me an aspiring author of sorts. I started TPM back in 2013 so I could discuss my favorite prog albums; before that, I had written for progarchives.com, progulator.com, progshine.net, and powerofmetal.dk. TPM is my only writing venue online right now, though I am currently writing two books, as well.
My favorite bands include: Riverside, Evergrey, Anathema, Kamelot, ISON, Draconian, Pendragon, Votum, The Moody Blues, Pink Floyd, Dead Can Dance, Pain of Salvation, and many more.
