Recently had the pleasure of writing an artist bio for indie artist Q Jane, whose debut album will be released this fall on a new Albany imprint, Just Pretend Records. I really enjoyed the process, from interviewing to working together on edits to come up with a result we both are happy with. I really enjoy writing artist bios because of the focus on condensing information and being selective with language. They are a difficult thing to write, especially for the subject in question, and I appreciate the opportunity to make the process a little less stressful. As Q. Jane reminded me in an email, "anything worth refining is a process."
