Five years ago, before we got our shiny new name and a spiffy website, our music reviews lived online through an amateur build-your-own site we called Freerider Music Reviews. It was doused in cheesy purple accents and Comic Sans (don't hold it against us -- we were young). A mini hobby, born out of a massive passion, turned into Buzz Artist, a full-blown music website that operated for four years. There, we conducted phone and email Q&As with our favorite artists, shared reviews of albums we loved, and launched a strong social media presence.
After years of hard work with Buzz Artist, that musical chapter had ended and we felt we needed to explode creatively -- so we launched The Music Mermaid. Now, we are doing everything we set out to do five years ago, but this time we're doing it bigger and better than before. We've got a hunger for music and we want to share the marvelous, magical, sonic wonders of the world with you. Here at The Music Mermaid, we've got you covered. Enjoy our exclusive interviews, frequent CD giveaways, constant music news, album reviews, and so much more.
