After spending five years as the music editor for SceneandHeard.ca, plus as a contributor for Soundproof magazine, truth.explosion, Dose.ca and Metro, I decided it was time to move forward with my own music blog. And thus, hanging @ the back was born. The title of the blog is a humourous reference to the stereotype of music journalists being the ones hanging at the back of the venue as well as a gentle poke at the, “too cool for this shit” crowd who hang at the back of the venue.
It’s also about what I hope to accomplish with the blog, give a voice to the artists who are hanging at the back but will move forward. I have an uncanny knack for spotting the coolest acts before they hit it big so h@tb will be the place you can go and say you heard about a band or artist before they were cool
