About Us

The Sound Live is a music media platform based out of New York City, New York and Austin, Texas. Our first article went live in January, 2015 and since then we have grown to cover some of the biggest musical acts in pop and heavy metal music.

Though our beginnings are rooted in the local, underground music scene of New York City, and it is local music and artistry where we truly find ourselves. See our “Artist You Should Know” and “Interviews” sections for more.

We are also believers of the fact that music is inevitably connected to the events happening around it, so do not be surprised if you find political perspectives embedded into our coverage pieces. We are an LGBTQ+, differently-abled, women, POC, muslim, immigrant, refugee ally website. We aim to further bridge the music world with important political events, even when the music industry tries to distance itself.

While we are based out of two cities, we welcome any writer, photographer and student (in NYC, Austin, or anywhere else) looking to expand their skills with us. We are currently seeking contributors who can fulfill these roles: writer, photographer, op-ed writer, album/film/book reviewers. Please email us if you are interested- thesoundliveofficial@gmail.com

We are happy to provide temporary/seasonal internships to students looking to get experience with entertainment blogging/journalism and photography. Please email us to discuss the process- thesoundliveofficial@gmail.com
