Our contributors are vital to the health and growth of our website and without them Clunk wouldn’t be where it is today! Come get to know them a little bit better.
I’m a freelance filmmaker and writer currently based in London. All about film, music, sea, travel and still a 90s punk rock kid to the core. Film graduate from Falmouth University and can only stay away from Cornwall for so long. Constantly looking for somewhere to spout my flavoursome opinions and output and Clunk is a hell of a home for them.
Manchester born, Cornwall bred – I’m a musician, producer and songwriter before anything else – I perform/write for Cornish bands Hypophora and For The Oracle. I love touring, recording and composing. I’m currently studying Music Production in the heart of Bristol.
Photography and design is a big part of my life – live shoots, promotional shoots, street photography, cornish scenery and more, I love capturing the moment on camera. I’ve always had a love for words and I’m constantly inspired by the world of journalism and writing.
I love experiencing live music – what better way to document it than with journalism and photography?
Hey yo whaddup it’s your boy Bear here. I’ve always had a love for writing ever since I could first grip a pen and make up my own words. I guess you could say the same for music as well (or at least until I learnt the words to whatever CD/mix tape my parents were blasting in the car that week). I went to university to study how to make films, but I learnt a lot more than that, I learnt how to understand films (that sentence doesn’t make me sound pretentious at all you’re wrong). Since then I’ve been lapping up as many as I can. As soon as I was old enough and had my own money I started going to gigs, I couldn’t get enough of it.
The thrill of seeing an artist’s live and losing yourself in that moment was more addictive than any drug. So these days you’ll find me somewhere in London, probably drinking an over priced beer and complaining about something, or sitting in the middle seats of the middle row in a nice cinema watching anything and everything, or in the middle of the pit crying my eyes out to whichever favourite band of mine is on stage. Since I love doing all of them and writing about it, I thought why not combine my passions?! Clunk is a great magazine collective for creativity and freedom, and I’m happy and proud to be a part of the team.
Ironically my nickname is Webz, despite my impending fear of spiders! Northern girl studying English and History in arguably THE best city in the world… Leeds. I’m a creative and love all things art, music and literature. I write poetry and adore Beat Generation writers. Contrary to popular belief, blink 182 did not write The Rock Show about me however you will most definitely find me at many shows and festivals cutting shapes right at the front. It’s where I am happiest. Music is a huge part of my life and I’m grateful to have the opportunity to write for Clunk.
Music is the only thing on the planet that matters above literally all else, without exception! Expect lots of live show reviews, the occasional album/EP review, think pieces, yearly lists and more. I play in two rock bands (For The Oracle and Knave), constantly working on new projects in as many different styles as I possibly can, studying musicology/performance at Falmouth Uni this coming September and aspiring to teach music to college students.
