I’m Giosi, a freelance writer from Montreal, Quebec. My world of words is fueled by my passion for music and movies. I am a rock’n’roll type gal- a die-hard fan of British rockers Def Leppard (consequently, my first interview!) and the reason I did try guitar lessons for 2 yrs. I’m the girl you always call for “road trips”…there is nothing like feeling the music live and feeding off the energy of the crowd. The connection between the fan and the artist is how I like to describe my interviews. Every experience captivates its own story.
I love to explore new artists’ music because I believe all genres of music are interlocked. Currently, I’m loving the sounds of country music especially our homegrown talent !
