I’m from Texas but I’ve lived and worked in Hong Kong for 20+ years, mainly writing and editing for TV, film, web and print. When I first started this blog, Hong Kong was a fine place if you loved Canto-pop or K-pop but terrible if you enjoyed real live music and good rock-n-roll and country. However, in the last ten years, the scene has definitely changed for the better as more and more indie bands and big touring acts make their way to our shores. We’re still crap when it comes to country and alt-country, but hey! I remind myself, you’re not in Austin anymore 🙂
My main reason for writing this blog is to reconnect to the music I love and to the people I love who love music. Along the way I’ve found I’m writing a lot about my kids – EO the Eldest One and YO the Youngest One – and about how they’re experiencing and consuming music. They think The Shins, Fleet Foxes, Neko Case and Radiohead are weird, but I’m hopeful.
