Marion Brown art for webI write about jazz, pop and classical music for Downbeat magazine, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Atlanta Magazine, the Bitter Southerner and other publications. 

Some recent classical writing includes a feature on Nathalie Stutzmann for Atlanta magazine and an interview with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra’s incoming artistic vice president Gaetan le Divelec for the AJC. It was a thrill to speak with Joel Thompson about “Awaken the Sleeper” and attend the Atlanta premiere.

A lot of my jazz writing focuses on exploring music and history through a Southern lens, as I did in an article about Marion Brown for the Bitter Southerner, which won the 2022 ASCAP Deems Taylor/Virgil Thomson Award for pop music writing.
