Jazz Revelations: Issue 1 - Leeds
We are beyond excited to launch the magazine project we have been working on and take our first steps to becoming a printed publication. Our first magazine focuses on the Leeds jazz scene.
After spending the last four years producing online content about the wider jazz scene, we decided to create a physical magazine about a scene very close to our hearts, Leeds.
Leeds does not always get the credit it deserves for how amazing its music community is and is often underrepresented in the music media.
With our team having a strong base in Leeds, we wanted to create a magazine that shares the amazing music of the city that has brought us so much joy during our time living here.
The magazine presents a coordinated voice on the scene and celebrate the artists who recently have been making waves and proving Leeds is home to one of the best contemporary jazz scenes right now.
The magazine features artists in Leeds producing jazz, R&B, neo-soul, hip hop and electronica music, including:
In the magazine, you can expect to find in-depth interviews and crate digging with artists, release roundups, an extended feature of our radio piece 'On Rotation', looking ahead to the future talent in the city, a little history on the city's scene, plus a mix to accompany your reading.
The magazine is audio-described as well for those with different accessibility needs.
And a special thanks to Ben Lee, editor-in-chief of the magazine, for producing the whole project.
