Get to Know Me

Get to Know Me

Welcome to my music blog! This is my space to talk about any and all music-related topics, and to share my love of music with others.

I’m currently a junior at Towson University, where I major in Mass Communications (PR) and minor in Theatre Arts. I began as an Audio Production major to learn how to create music, but learned pretty quickly that my talents lay elsewhere. I thus shifted my focus on something else I do well: writing!

This blog was initially a class assignment for an Intro to Mass Communications course in 2016. I had been debating creating a music blog for a few years, and figured since I already had a domain, why not?

And what a ride it’s been! In addition to reviewing new music, I create features such as Track by Tracks and New Music Tuesdays. Shani’s Ideas has even, on occasion, caught the eyes of musicians both in and out of my hometown of Baltimore, MD. Through this blog, I conducted my first interview with Baltimore’s The Chance, wrote an early review for Long Island band Fox Hollow’s debut EP, and been contacted to do New Music Tuesday features for bands in Canada, Belarus, and Los Angeles.

I’m a total music-oholic. I almost always have earbuds in or music playing in the background. It’s become a hobby of sorts to find new music, which inspired my “New Music Tuesday” posts. I try to make it to concerts when I can. My first show was in July 2016, when I saw Disturbed and Breaking Benjamin at Jiffy Lube (VA). My favorite show to date has been the All Time Low acoustic show at Sound Garden that I attended in early June 2017.

When I’m not blogging, I can usually be found reading, watching Netflix, or writing as a Content Creator for the Towson University Odyssey team, which I’ve been on since November 2017.
