My name is J. Andrew Zalucky and I’m music writer from Connecticut. I am currently a proud contributor to Decibel, Metal Injection and Nine Circles. My articles typically include album reviews, interviews, concert re-caps and editorials. Whenever possible, I like to weave my interests in politics, history and literature into my writing about loud and crazy music.
Professionally, I work as an editor at a b-to-b research and advisory firm. My work includes editing proprietary research deliverables, blogs and other content (presentations, marketing communications). I do a significant amount of production work, laying out research in InDesign and publishing it to the corporate website. I also help manage the company’s information architecture that governs the connections between our content and our various research disciplines.

My review of Clutch’s 2013 album, Earth Rocker, was featured in the book That Devil Music: Best Rock Writing 2014, published by Anthem Publishing.
