Our Team

Justin

Role: Founder/Leader

About me: “It’s a real honour to be the ‘leader’ of this awesome team. We all share the same passion for music, which I really like. In my opinion people aren’t familiar enough with rock music. They listen to music on the radio, but there’s so much more than that. Bands like Rise Against and Sixx:A.M. which are two of my favourite bands, have songs with very inspirational lyrics. I would like to help people discover this music. It’s more than just awesome; it can help you develop yourself as well. Besides that, I’m kind of bored with the standard way of reading album reviews and reviews about young bands. My goal is to bring music in a different way by creating a new look at it.”

My favourite bands: Rise Against, Sixx:A.M., Nothing More, Crown The Empire

My favourite album: Sixx:A.M. – Prayers for the Damned (2016)

Active since: July 2014

 

Timothy

Role: Co-leader / Graphic Artist

About me: “A few years ago music wasn’t very important to me, but that’s completely different now. Around two years ago I started to listen specific styles. In 2014 Justin came up with the idea for Our Music 4 Life (although we didn’t have a name at that moment) and I liked the idea. Since then I’m even more active into music. My all-time favourite band is Linkin Park. I like their first two albums a lot and I really like their newest album, which The Hunting Party, as well. I really like the sound of their music and Chester Bennington’s voice is awesome. The best part of music is when you experience it live. It’s such a great experience. As writing isn’t my best ability I’ll also focus on the graphical part of the site.”

My favourite bands: Linkin Park, System of a Down, Avenged Sevenfold, Halestorm, Papa Roach, Three Days Grace, Five Finger Death Punch

My favourite album: Linkin Park – The Hunting Party (2014)

Active since: July 2014

 

Behind Justin and Timothy there’s a small team which helps work out new ideas and give feedback on articles and graphics. They’re an important part of the site as well!

 

History

In July 2014, Justin was talking to Timothy about music. At a given moment he made the joke to start a blog where they’ll criticize songs and create a music database. But the joke became a serious project and a few weeks later they started a blog. They asked Daniël, Timothy’s brother, to participate as well and started to create their database.

In January 2015 they were talking about the future of the blog. It was fun, but it could’ve been much bigger. Especially because many unknown bands were found, and those bands were really good. They deserve a chance at the public. A new vision was created. As growing was a mission as well, friends were asked to participate. Many enthusiastic replies were received about the new plan, so they started to plan to make the switch from a blog to a musical site. The site is since April 2015 in its current form, but the old posts can still be found.

Contact Us

Our mission isn’t only to promote small bands, but we’d like to have contact with them as well. Our public may not be very big yet, but if your band is interested in a cooperation, don’t be afraid to contact us. And if you just want to send us your music, get in touch with us through e-mail or social media. You can also send us bands we really should check out. We’ll sure take a listen to it, because we love to explore new great bands!
