The Oxford American Tennessee Music Issue

The Oxford American Tennessee Music Issue will be available on newsstands December 2, 2013. This is the finest literary music magazine you will read and savor this year.

The 15th annual Oxford American Music issue is an appreciation of Tennessee! It comes with a double CD (50 tracks), and the magazine is filled with 176 pages of excellent writing + beautiful art.

I decided not to wait for Tennessee Music Issue 83 to appear on the magazine rack at Barnes & Noble. I placed an advanced order today with The Oxford American and hopefully will have my copy on or before 12/2/13.

I was looking at the prior back issues of the annual music magazine. I discovered that many of the issues from 1-14 are sold out. I only own issues 13 and 14 right now. I am contemplating buying the cloth book, The Oxford American Book of Great Music Writing. This book celebrates the first 10 years (Issues 1-10), which would mean I just have to acquire issues 11 and 12 at some point…

Music Journalism – A-Z – Jaan Uhelszki

Jaan Uhelszki

Jaan Uhelszki is an American music journalist and co-founder of the music magazine CREEM. Like Gloria Stavers and Lillian Roxon whom I have featured in this series she is one of the first women to work in rock journalism.

In 1976 she left CREEM and moved to Los Angeles to work for Record World magazine. She would go on to become founding news editor of online magazine Addicted to Noise before heading up Microsoft Music Central’s news department.

She holds the unique distinction in being “the only journalist to have ever performed in full makeup with Kiss”?

Uhelszki has been a contributing editor for Rolling Stone Online. She presently works as Relix’s editor-at-large. Jaan is also a regular contributor to my favorite UK music magazines Uncut and Classic Rock. She has also contributed articles to The Morton Report.

Uhelszki writes liner notes for Sony Legacy RecordingsRhino Records, and Time-Life. She has written essays for Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees The Pretenders, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Patti Smith, and The Stooges. Jaan Uhelszki regularly appears as a music authority on VH1’s “Behind the Music” series, as well as on radio shows and at industry panels and workshops, where she works as a media trainer.
