I’m Sarah, and I’m an English Literature student originally from Merseyside and currently studying at the University of Manchester. I love music and writing so I decided to combine the two and write about music! I’m an avid gig-goer and passionate about anything 90s Britpop or alt-rock related. I currently contribute reviews to The Mancunion, Bido Lito! and The Indiependent, as well as Music Is To Blame.

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

Hi, I'm James! I'm a 23-year-old global security and history graduate with a passion for music. Although I currently work in film distribution in Glasgow, I listen to and play music as much as I can in my free time - and I’m always keen for a gig.

Editor: James Ogden 

Hi, I’m James! I’m currently studying for a Masters in Publishing and in my spare time, I am a freelance writer. I have a real passion for music and feel the diversity of artists found on Music is to Blame is something that’s really missing from mainstream publications. It’s a pleasure to be part of such a team!

Editor: Dillon Walsh

Hey I'm Dillon, I'm from London and am about to finish studying Journalism and Creative Writing at Falmouth University. People say I talk about music way too much so decided to become a music journalist so I can do it without getting told off.

I am huge on rock and will never lose if it's a trivia category, and I will never miss an opportunity to share my views on different bands and artists.

Favourite Artists: Genesis, Alice in Chains, Jeff Buckley
