About

I write about music & support music, art & filmmaking. My independent music blog is http://wajobu.com/ & I also have articles published at Affordable Audio & HifiZine. I'm working on starting a music label. I was trained as a percussionist and am getting back into writing & playing various guitars after a very long hiatus. I'm also an audio geek & have built some of my own equipment (valve/tube) though I listen to both valve/tube & transistor-based equipment. I do accept music submissions for reviews. My day job is architecture. I hope to upload some music samples once I get my recording equipment in order. Also find me here: https://www.facebook.com/wajobu
