Music is our PASSION.

Welcome to Music Scene Media! We created this outlet both to help give musicians more of an audience and also to showcase the work of our talented music photographers. We feature concert galleries and reviews, along with video features and interviews, with both up and coming bands and national touring acts. We try to feature a variety of genres, but do tend to focus more on rock and metal.

The purpose behind all of this is one simple, unified goal – to share the passion that is live music. We love what we do, and we hope that you do, too!
