Hello! My name is Kris Perez, I started up The Indie Sound (previously named The Indie Review) last year as a project to further my writing and to try to get closer to a dream I’ve had for a while now.
I’m currently a freshman at Ohio University and I’m lucky enough to be studying at one of the top Journalism schools in the nation, E.W. Scripps School of Journalism. What’s my major goal? I want to turn The Indie Sound into something big. I want to meet artists, network, make connections, and spread the music I discover to people all over the world. I hope to one day turn this into a full time job, into a major online publication.
Music is a major part of my life, I listen to almost anything. If I haven’t heard it before, I’m willing to try. This blog mainly focuses on alternative rock and “indie” stuff (as pretentious as that sounds) but we don’t shy away from covering any artist regardless of the genre.
I love music and I love writing. It’s basically what drives me. Writing for this blog is a way that I hope to spread some great music with the all of you. Accomplishing all this and gaining readers and followers is getting me closer to my dreams, so to all reading, thank you.
As for my favorite artist…I really can’t pick one. I have so many artists that I absolutely love. If I HAD to choose…it would probably be The Kooks, or Walk The Moon, or The Griswolds, or Bombay Bicycle Club…the list can go on forever.
Music is my life, and I really hope I’m accomplishing something by spreading my love for it.
Thanks for reading!
