Jersey Beat Music Fanzine



My Favorites from 2017

2017 was a really good year for music, one that allowed me to expand my horizons and open my eyes and ears to so many different types of music. I’ve learned that music has a color and feel about it. The more you listen, the more it rewards you. Placing it in safe little genres and sub genres doesn’t appeal to me anymore. Writing for Jersey Beat has opened a lot of doors while allowing me to expand what I listen to. I plan on keeping those doors open in 2018 and beyond.

Happy New Year.
James Damion
