Editor: Reece Ritchie

I'm Reece, I'm an Economics and Politics student at the University of Manchester but music has been my lifelong passion! I've been going to gigs for as long as I can remember and in recent years have started directing that energy into music journalism. I'm a music editor over at The Mancunion, a contributor at WHATWESPEW and I even run my own alternative radio show on Fuse FM called The NorthWest Emo Show. I'm a big fan of putting people onto new artist and discussing the underground scene especially around Manchester!

Favourite artists: Hot Mulligan, Easy Life, Idles and Me Rex

Editor: Jasmin Davies (she/her)

I am a Cornish-based management student with a passion for music and a love for writing. I’ve enjoyed listening to music since I was a child, and now I’m aspiring for a career in journalism. Working for Music is To Blame is a perfect opportunity to develop my editing skills and involve myself in an area that I am interested in.

Editor: Liza Kupreeva (she/her)

I am writer and editor living and dying in London. I have plenty of opinions and a wide scope of interest across the arts – especially in music and film. My dream is to one day be paid to eat out, but until then you can catch me chilling with my cat, making Spotify playlists and writing reviews of everything I come across.

Favourite Artists: Talking Heads, Joy Division, Black Marble

Editor: Maddie Bridger

I'm Maddie, an English and Media graduate from the University of Sussex. I started at Music Is To Blame this year to maintain writing for fun, but enjoy editing most, and when I'm not writing and reviewing music I'm streaming and listening to it. 

My top 3 artists of the past few years have probably been Folamour, Orbital and D'Angelo - but this is absolutely subject to change (and Frank Ocean will always have a special place in my heart). 

I'm really looking forward to the upcoming year with Music Is To Blame and getting my teeth stuck into some music I might not have heard otherwise!

Favourite Artists: Folamour, D'Angelo, Frank Ocean

Editor: Mark Attwood (he/him)

I'm a photographer, artist, and journalist from Lancaster U.K. I'm mostly passionate about electronic music, but have a hugely eclectic music taste, taking interest in everything from Motley Crue to Anamanaguchi. Music has been a core part of my life since I was a child just messing around with small synths. My first album purchases as a young teen were Nero's 'Welcome Reality', Foster the People's 'Torches', and M83's 'Hurry Up, We're Dreaming', all telling of my fairly eclectic music taste. My taste and love for music grew over the years, so now, listening to and making music is almost as much a part of my everyday life as my photographic work.

Favourite Artists: Porter Robinson, Foals, Simple Minds
