Eleven Years of Avant Music News

On April 29, 2003 I posted the first three articles on what would become Avant Music News.  Eleven years later, we have 2475 followers on Facebook and 2100 on Twitter.  We’ve published 18,260 articles, of which 234 are original reviews, and 25 are original interviews.  We began doing reviews less than three years ago, and interviews about 7 months ago, so I am proud of these numbers.

Lots of thanks go out to the community.  To the contributors for their input, to the artists for their updates, sharing their music, and thoughtful answers to interview questions, and to you, the reader.  Somehow, all of you make getting up early in the morning each day to work on this site worthwhile.
