TEMECULA, Calif., January 1, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — MuseWire was selected by Feedspot panelists as one of the top 60 music industry blogs on the web. Musewire™ (aka Music Industry Newswire™) covers music creators, music gear, the music industry and related topics; created in 2005. A publication of Neotrope®. Edited by Christopher Laird Simmonstechnology journalist since 1984 and member of ASCAP.

“It was a nice honor out of the blue,” says Christopher Simmons. “MuseWire was a pretty big news portal before 2016 when I narrowed things down to a personal blog due to the explosion of ‘me too’ music news sites and not all version updates of a music plugin.”

“I personally give you a high-five and want to thank you for your contribution to this world. This is the most comprehensive list of Top 60 Music Industry Blogs on the internet and I’m honored to have you here!” said the founder of Feedspot. Anuj Agarwal.

“I hope to improve the site by turning it into a video channel on YouTube in 2022,” adds Simmons. “Video is definitely more compelling for a lot of things now, like music tech reviews and tutorials. Since I just built a new home studio, the timing is about right.”
