Hi! I'm Madison Murray, an entertainment and lifestyle writer dedicated to uplifting small artists as much as possible. I've been writing for TREMG since October 2020, ranking as the site's top author of 2020 and 2021, and The Honey POP since October 2021, with a focus on spinning press and new releases into interesting stories that fans can enjoy for years to come.
I've been enamored with the music industry since I saw Taylor Swift live in 2011. That was the first time I saw music as an experience rather than just something to soundtrack a car ride, and since then, I've wanted to share my love of music with as many people as possible. Whether it's American artists like Taylor and Machine Gun Kelly or Korean artists like BLACKPINK and aespa, I'm in tune with the content that fans enjoy and offering them that content is one of my main motivations.
One of my specialties is looking at the wider context of artist updates and new releases to see how they fit into their career environment, such as looking at how MGK's 'Hotel Diablo' played on the negative press he received in the years leading up to the album or how Lorde's 'Solar Power' explores the trappings of teenage fame through references to the natural world. I also focus on the context and stories surrounding independent artists' work, which has been a staple of my interviews with artists like Brynn Elliott, Chris Gabo, and Rap-Unzel.
Outside of work, I love cats and spending time with my family. My favorite artists include Taylor Swift, Machine Gun Kelly, BLACKPINK, aespa, Elko, and phem, and my pronouns are she/her.
