We created TotallyWired Magazine to shout about great bands who we feel aren’t given enough attention. Originally from South-London, our first writers studied media at The BRIT School where instead of doing coursework, we spent most of our time sat in radio studios listening to music at full blast or creating live music television shows.
In our two years at the school, we discovered many of our now favourite bands purely through each others recommendation and enjoyed the brilliant tunes of the school’s music students just as much, some of who have since had massive success. TWM exists to continue those days of discovery for us and to share them with the world – enjoy!
Jessie Smith is a storyteller, illustrator, and poet from London. Born and raised on a wide variety of music, Jessie is a collector of sound and makes the effort to dip her toes in every genre imaginable. However, if she had to pick her favourites they will always revolve around post-punk, blues, classic rock, and folk.
We’re always looking for music writers and creatives who want to share artists they love with the world. Think that could be you? Click below for details.
