You’ve been a dream, 2014… (Happy holidays from TGTF!)

Another year has come and gone. Time sure flies when you’re having fun, doesn’t it? But before we pull down the blinds and close up the shutters here for Christmas at TGTF Towers, I want to say thanks to all you wonderful readers of this Web site, whether you live in the UK or America, Ireland to Australia, Canada to Chile (and yes, we really do have readers in Chile!), wherever you are. We appreciate each and every one of you for relying on and trusting us to bring you the best new music, insights and reviews from acts of the UK, the U.S. and beyond.

As I briefly alluded to in the introduction to my top albums of 2014 post on Monday, 2014 marked the first year where streaming far outpaced music downloads, a clear indication of yet another shift occurring in our dynamic music industry. Too many people, including my own very cynical family, tell me that the music blog is a dying art, that it’s all about self-curation now, that we’re fighting a losing battle. But the numbers don’t lie. The sheer fact that you’ve chosen us at TGTF over all others as your port of call, your source for information on your favourite bands is humbling. We’ll use your faith in us as further motivation to “keep on keepin’ on” in 2015.

Ta muchly to the artists and bands
, for without them we’d not have the music to fall in love with and have nothing to write about! If I haven’t seen you live and/or interviewed you yet, that means you have your first big, big hug from me waiting for you in 2015. (Just ask your friends. Apparently my hugs are legendary…) Thanks very much also the management, press officers and label people who have helped me get everything – the exclusives, review materials, press credentials, the whole kit and caboodle! – so we can continue to bring you fine readers quality content. I’ve known some of you for many years now, and some of you I’ve only just met and become friends with in 2014. I can’t wait to continue this journey with you all next year and beyond.

Happy Christmas to all! We’ll be back here on the 5th of January 2015.

About Us

There Goes The Fear is where we tell you about the latest music, gigs, and tours we love and think you should too.

We love music that has its heart on its sleeve, tells a story, swims around our head all day or makes us dance like no-one's watching.

TGTF is edited by Mary Chang, who is based in Washington, DC. She is joined by writers in England, America and Ireland. It began as a UK music blog by Phil Singer in 2005.

All MP3s are posted with the permission of the artists or their representatives and are for sampling only. Like the music? Buy it.
