DENVER, CO (MARCH 31, 2020) – imPRESSED Indie Music Blog has announced a new partnership with PureGrainMedia’s flagship music and popular culture blog, V13 Media. Hosting the imPRESSED Column on V13.net, the team will bring a niche focus to the rapidly evolving indie music genre focusing on the creativity and artistry of independent artists and musicians who create a sound that can’t be put into a box (often experimental and alternative sounds).
The collaboration comes just after the launch of V13’s new site, a rebranding and amalgamation of a collective of top music blogs such as PureGrainAudio, Sax & Violins, MaxMuzik, and others. The imPRESSED team is eager to collaborate on an exclusive column on V13’s site, primarily curated by Dawn Jones (Founder of imPRESSED and Pressed PR), to highlight artists in the ever-evolving indie genre.
“We are so excited to be joining the team at V13 to be a part of a blog that fully supports the discovery of independent creatives in both music and film spaces. We hope that this enables us to discover and share even more with the world and we can’t wait to see how our journey evolves.” – Dawn Jones, Curator of imPRESSED
“Although we are fans of indie music past and present, we felt that it was a genre that was lacking in-depth and detail within the space of V13 Media. It’s also an area of music that we specifically targeted for expanding our engagement. That’s why it made perfect sense to begin working with Dawn, someone who has specific knowledge of how to navigate the indie space. Dawn is not only well-engaged with the industry of current and emerging artists but also is an outstandingly talented writer with the reputation to back it up. We welcome Dawn with open arms and can’t wait to tap into a whole industry of brilliant artists.” – V13 Management Team
V13 Media is a consolidation of previous publications Sax&Violins, V13.ca, MaxMuzik.com, and PureGrainAudio (and un-launched site, PureGrainVideo) covering art, music, news and culture worldwide. Flagship website, PureGrainAudio, was established in 2001 and quickly grew into a leading web destination for all things “heavy music” inclusive of Alternative, Rock, Punk, Hardcore, Metal, and Indie coverage, eventually acquiring and partnering with several other popular blogs such as Planet Loud, Lithium Magazine, and Broken Amp. With an excellent and committed global team of journalists, writers, and photographers with varied tastes and passions, Founders Christopher Gonda, Aaron Willschick and Graham Finney decided it was logical that they combined all sites into one new home wherein contributors are free to cover the music, film, TV, documentaries, pop culture, and socio-political stories that mean the most to them. They decided to rebrand as V13 – a new beginning, but also an homage to a website they ran before founding PureGrainAudio. “Running multiple sites has proven to be highly rewarding but also challenging so, with a continued focus on streamlining productivity, what better time than PureGrainAudio’s 15th anniversary and in 2020, the year of hindsight, to relaunch?” the team says. “We have merged all of our properties into one new home with a brand that recalls our humble beginnings. Welcome to V13 Media. Vita. Veritas. Vox Populi.”
