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!

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

Editor: James Hepburn (he/ him)

I’m James; a 22-year-old graduate who has just finished an MSc in political science at the University of Glasgow. Music has always been my passion – whether it has been in the form of gigs, vinyls, or playing instruments myself. A recent sonic adventure of mine has been diving deep into the world of punk (hardcore, post, ska, etc.). Its fair to say that after the past year I’ve been regularly searching for musical catharsis!


Favourite Artists: Peach Pit, Jeff Rosenstock, Frightened Rabbit.

It’s a pleasure to be part of such a team! 

Favourite artists: James, Cocteau Twins, Pixies.
