Brendon Goldwasser

Senior Writer

As a Senior Writer, Brendon oversees website content on a weekly basis, handles various industry outreach to expand the brand, and focuses on growing the fan base through unique and ever-changing tactics. He runs features, premieres, interviews, show reviews, and posts fresh new tracks and videos. Additionally, he runs the Official GS Soundcloud page where he compiles bi-monthly playlists of what is being covered on the site. Ever since falling in love with the vinyl records of the 60s and 70s that his parents had, he's always been passionate about new music discovery. The true turning point was seeing Daft Punk live at Lollaplooza in 2007 and from that point forward a lifelong bond with music was formed. Brendon joined the GroundSounds team in the Summer of 2012. His musical tastes are constantly expanding and he loves everything from Electronic and Indie-Rock, to Hip-Hop or anything with a funk, soul, or pop influence. In addition to GroundSounds, he manages The New Investors from Copenhagen, while also writing for The Sights and Sounds and Life Is A Banana.

I like discovering new music of all genres, but at heart I'm a devoted hip-hop head. Whether it's keeping in tune with the newcomers, or diggin for gems and old mcs from the past.
