About The Author

“One glimpse is all it takes to tell you that Music Is Art is something special. You can start by judging this blog by its cover—it’s one of the best-designed, most aesthetically aware music blogs around—but there’s much more to it than just a pretty template. For one, Danielle, the “dreamer/designer” behind MIA, focuses not only on excellent music, but on art, photography and writing and how they all intersect and inform the music. By sharing the sounds and sights that inspire her, she’s inspiring a growing number of readers on a daily basis. By documenting artists’ creative processes, she’s, in the process, creating a pretty substantial, always-evolving work of art herself.” - Nerd Litter

    I’m psyched to hear it. I thought Tricky disappeared off the face of the earth (which I guess may be my own fault, since apparently he’s been releasing albums all this time. Last time I was paying attention, he only had two–and now he’s up to eight???!!!) but then just saw he’s playing the Trocadero in Philly next month.
