Welcome to ‘The Eagle’s Nest’ – a nest of musical ideas, opinions and reviews.
This blog now functions as an archive of my music journalism work between March and November 2011, since I have moved to my new website/online portfolio. The new Eagle’s Nest can now be found at www.theeaglesnestza.com.
During 2011, I ran this site on a part-time basis, indulging my passion for writing and reviewing music. In between reviews, I’d occasionally post some of my poetry. Thus, this WordPress site is an accurate snapshot of my creativity during that year.
At the beginning of 2013, after completing my Honours degree in Quantity Surveying (Engineering), I decided to take my music journalism full-time. Although the bird has flown from this nest, you as the reader can still enjoy what I have left behind.
Enjoy your stay,
P.S. One of my first posts back in 2011, titled ‘Who Am I?’, gives a little more info on who I am, what music means to me, and has meant to me throughout my life. Preferences, beliefs, amusing nostalgic anecdotes…it’s all there! Although my tastes have broadened widely since then, it’s a good place to start.
