Hello Discogs Community!
My name is Amy and I’m very excited to be a new member to the Discogs team as Community Support. A little about me? I am a native midwesterner, having spent my growing years in the richly art supported community of Madison, WI. My teen years were spent in Santa Cruz, CA where I spent many a night playing guitar and singing at beach bonfire parties. Serendipitous circumstances eventually led me to settling in Portland, and I must say I couldn’t be happier!
Besides that, I’ve worked as a professional musician for over fifteen years, playing a number of instruments and dabbling a bit in electro-acoustic music. It is no surprise that Discogs was started in Portland, as I’ve been so impressed by the music community here and how it continues to evolve in a number of exciting, innovative, and accessible ways. For example, if you’re a band from Portland, having vinyl as merch is expected. Your fans will buy it! I think we can all agree that there really is nothing more nostalgic and pleasing to the ear than listening to vinyl.
Thanks for listening! We’ll be in touch!
