NeHi Stripes Musiczine Seattle started in May 2017. But the idea came about 1 year earlier.
Grungegirl 50 used to write for an entertainment website, which is more specifically called a “click bait” site. After a couple of years writing her own articles, it was time for her to start a website, solely based on the Seattle music we like.
She asked longtime friend and fellow Seattle music fan, Kurt Clark to join the adventure, as the webzine’s photographer, and co-website administrator.
We’ve been fortunate to be welcomed by the Seattle bands and have been encouraged to continue with this path. Currently, we do not have a set schedule on when articles are published. That’s due to lack of writers, and researchers. Grungegirl 50 is the only writer for the site at the moment. If you’re interested in becoming a part of our team, please send an email to NeHiStripes@MetalFan.com. This is strictly voluntary, and does not pay.
For bands that want us to review their music, send us an email and a short bio of your band, your location, a link to the music you want reviewed, your own name and how to contact you to NeHiStripes@MetalFan.com
Important; if we do not feel your music is what we’d be comfortable reviewing, we will not write it up. Please also allow up to 5 weeks for any kind of update. If after that time, you still haven’t heard from us, please go ahead and email us again.
We are still very young and have a long way to go. We need to add a couple of writers and a researcher to join our team. We need to keep it Seattle Rock/Alternative music based. However, we will be happy to promote bands outside the Seattle area, only if they have a good sound.
For any bands that want their shows photographed, please email Kurt Clark at NeHiStripes-Photo@MetalFan.com
