I’m a freelance music journalist and broadcaster based in Scotland.

I write, or have written for, publications including The Herald, The Sunday Herald, Q Magazine, MOJO, Time Out, The Big Issue, The List, The Quietus, and Plan B.

I also speak about music on TV and radio. I regularly present shows – and review arts and music – on BBC Radio Scotland, and have contributed to BBC Radio 1, BBC 6 Music and BBC Radio 4. (And Radio Clyde, if you count the childhood incident that saw me extol the virtues of Wet Wet Wet live on-air before hollering Angel Eyes down the phone-line…)

I used to work at Mute Records in London (with Moby, Goldfrapp, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Depeche Mode, Erasure, CAN, Einsturzende Neubauten, etc), for D-E-F Artist Management (Robyn, Moby, Sparks, The Knife), for Scotland’s Triptych Festival (Laurie Anderson, Herbie Hancock, Chuck D, Karlheinz Stockhausen, Grace Jones, Candi Staton, etc), at The Tron Theatre, Monorail Music and Glasgow’s much-missed arts hub, The Arches.

Here’s a list of some of the things my mother taught me

And here’s an interview I did with feminista pop activisits TYCI about my work and such
