Angela Adams – Co-Founder/Director of Operations & Keeping RR Legal
Angela is the girl that powers the train behind the scenes…from whoring us out relentlessly in a marketing capacity, selling advertising to anyone with a pulse that isn’t peddling something immoral or illegal, and keeping all of the administrative madness together so we all know what the hell is going on! With over 20 years in business and financial management in the entertainment arena, coupled with marketing, PR and brand management, she is the epitome of ”People that can’t create, tell people that do create what the hell they should be doing.”
Valerie King – Co-Founder & Editor of All That ROCKS!
Val has been a Journalist/Editor at various music-based websites and publications for over 20 years. Her life’s passion started at her first concert (KISS) at the age of 11 when she won front row tickets to the show from a radio station and became her big brothers hero for taking him. She decided right then that she adored rock & live music – the whole environment. So, after majoring in Journalism at NYU, Val metamorphosed from a normal rock n’ roll lover that went to see every live show, into a rock writer. It’s been a wild ride ever since! She takes her unique access to musicians seriously and feels like she is representing every fan that wishes they could sit down with their favorite rockstar and chat. So she tends to ask the type of questions that she thinks the true fans want to know – from the serious to the ridiculous! She lives in Atlanta, GA with her son, badass chihuahua Ernesto (Hemmingway) and fatass pug Don Vito.
Alice Roques – Co-Founder & Managing Editor
With a razor-sharp sense of humor and an eye for every f-up, Alice relentlessly edits all formats of RR along with interviewing artists in her own unique and interesting way. Her recently resurrected & polished up talents as a “coder/html/web diva” make all the buttons and gizmos on this rocketship of rock work correctly. Bow your head & say her name as you find your favorite bands separated into meticulous categories! Bow low…
Josh Rienecke – Photo Editor
Don’t let the meat cleaver in the pic or the full-sleeved appendages of this rockstar concert photographer throw you off…he’s a true sweetheart (well, unless you mess with him – then he will KILL YOU with his ninja skills) that always gets the money-shot! Capturing some of the biggest names in music for over 20 years, Josh is always packed and ready with both “guns” loaded and ready to shoot!
Johnny Price – Senior Journalist
Johnny P is a master of music trivia. Seriously…you don’t want to make any bets with the guy (ever) because he can probably name each Producer (and studio) from every KISS album (just for example) from the first track ever laid down. Consider yourself warned!
Besides being a walking music encyclopedia, Johnny is a gifted storyteller and tends to write with a true music-lovers heart. When he’s not interviewing bands for Rock Revolt™, you can find him at Bare Bones Music Network wreaking magical havoc over there!
Bradford W. Skelley – Journalist
At the early age of 17 years old Bradford embarked on a musical journey of epic proportions, and obtained his first photo pass to shoot his favorite band. Little did he know that this would be a foreshadowing moment of a life dedicated to all things that rock. So he sold his soul to Rock N’ Roll, and continued his exciting journey of entertainment bliss, branching out into writing and interviewing along with photography for several regional magazines. Bradford attends more events in a year than most do in a decade. He still happily works for In The Now Magazine along with his production jobs playing music of his own.
Chris Williams – Journalist/Fixer of “stuff” (website, prison tats, etc)
Chris has been a part of the live music scene and a lifelong metalhead since the early eighties, cutting his teeth on shows like Nosferatu, Predatory Nomad, Wrecking Crew, Danzig and GWAR at an early age back in Roanoke, VA. In addition to reviewing live acts, Chris also takes on album reviews and the indie video game scene (not only as a player but a published author / developer as well.) Chris currently lives in Greenville, SC but never stays in any one place for too long…
When not writing about his favorite bands and video games, Chris can be found trespass… err… “exploring and documenting the abandoned post-industrial urban landscape” with his best friend, Mr. Flashlight.
Nathan Holt – Photographer/Writer
Nathan is a doubly-talented member of RockRevolt as he’s not only a fantastic concert photographer, but accompanies his pictures with descriptive live show reviews. Nathan has attended and photographed literally hundreds of concerts of every genre throughout the years – from the largest arenas to small hole in the wall clubs. When not out at shows, he’s always listening for great new up and coming bands. Even though Nathan lives in the middle of nowhere (literally NO-WHERE), traveling countless hours to cover your favorite bands, his goal is to always bring the concert experience straight to you like you’re there. Check out all of Nathan’s photography work on his WEBSITE and FACEBOOK PAGE.
Thomas Woroniak – Photographer
Don’t let the serious face scare you – Thomas only shoots in the pit! This veteran concert photographer has earned his stripes, shooting thousands of shows through the years. He’s been featured in many regional magazines and newspapers in and around his hometown of Chicago. When he’s not at a show, Thomas is an IT whiz at some “other job” somewhere. He won’t tell us in fear that we’ll prank call him. Thomas has jumped in with both feet at RR, helping with editing of photos and teaming up with writing partner in crime, Bradford, to cover shows far and wide for RRM. You can check out all of Thomas’ work on his photography WEBSITE or FACEBOOK PAGE.
Gemma Solomons – Music News Jr. Editor/Journalist
Gemma is a first year graduate student at the Journalism school at the University of Colorado-Boulder. She decided to pursue journalism when all the creative writing instructors at her undergraduate school, when asked for career advice, simply shrugged their shoulders and said, “Starve, and then hopefully you’ll get lucky.” Besides getting up juicy tidbits of daily music news on the RR website, Gemma does album & live show reviews, feature stories and interviews. She has a tattoo of an asshole on the back of her neck (so don’t fuck with her), and her first live show was a Hanson concert when she was 8. “MMMBop” was her jam.
Cassie Carlson – Journalist
Cassie is a Junior at Purdue University, majoring in Journalism. She was fortunate enough to have been raised by metalhead parents, who brought the girl up right! Even though she may look like a Barbie doll – Cassie is a straight up horns-out metal chick who is not afraid to take on the scariest of bands for interviews or album reviews. We bow to her bravery and journalistic prowess! We could ruin her metal rep by posting a rap vid she did on YouTube, but we wouldn’t do that.
Connor Williams – Contributing Writer – UK
Connor is RR’s version of the “Almost Famous” kid with a Brittish accent! Covering all things cool in the UK for Rock Revolt™ with an ear for great new music and a rock writers drive to ask the questions of a true fan!
Treading where no American dare go, we’ve sent him on zombie walks, to every hard-core, grunge, screamo headbanging show from Bristol to London – and he keeps coming back for more! So our only rules for him are don’t miss school and … ”DON’T TAKE DRUGS!”
