A couple months ago I picked up a copy of Fringe Magazine from Simon Ripley's Music & Art near downtown Nashville. I hadn't heard of the magazine and didn't have much time to read, but the pictures were pretty so I gave it a whirl.
To my surprise, I read the magazine cover to cover that very same day. I was so intrigued by the articles that I went straight to YouTube and watched videos of all the artists they featured. I even liked their advertisers so much in between the articles that I went to their website and started following their tweets. I mean I became crazy obsessed.
For weeks I told everyone I knew about my new favorite find and now two months later I am still carrying around the issue in my bag. Why? Because it's an awesome magazine with creative content, wonderful writing and fabulous photos. I'm telling you I was instantly hooked.
Why does it work? It's simple, it's a music magazine about and for musicians. It is published 6x a year in Nashville, TN and features songwriters, musicians and advice. It's perfect for the music community because it's full of advice from industry professionals that shines light on what it takes to follow your dream career in music. It's inspirational and motivational -- Everyone who comes to Nashville with hopes of becoming a songwriter or a star needs to know this magazine cover to cover.
The next one comes out in May (I know you can't wait that long) so go read the past issues on their website at fringemagazine.com to see what I'm raving about! Then do yourself a favor and become a follower on facebook and twitter.
Since I love Fringe SO MUCH I thought I'd show some love with a Fringe inspired treasury from Etsy.com. Enjoy :)
