M: NEW NATIONAL PRINT MUSIC MAGAZINE COMING IN JANUARY
M MUSIC & MUSICIANS pairs innovative distribution model with top music journalism
November 16, 2009 – NEW YORK – M MUSIC & MUSICIANS—a new print magazine offering insightful, in-depth coverage from rock, pop and hip-hop to R&B, country, folk and jazz—is set to launch in January. M matches first-class features, interviews and reviews with a new distribution model that will guarantee a built-in readership of 160,000 starting with the first issue.
“M will blow away the clutter of the complex musical landscape by going behind the scenes and between the notes with the artists, musicians, producers, songwriters and dealmakers who shape the music world,” says publisher and magazine veteran Merlin David. “M is all about the way music gets made, played, recorded, released and enjoyed.”
In addition to traditional newsstand sales, M will be shipped with customer purchases made through major online musical gear retailer Sweetwater® — literally reaching dedicated music lovers where they live.
Published 8 times per year, the magazine will showcase the work of the music world’s most knowledgeable and forward-thinking journalists, photographers, designers and gear experts.
The magazine’s online presence at Mmusicmag.com will complete the M experience as a fully integrated destination—featuring exclusive interviews, interactive elements and a vibrant online community.
The M team is led by Merlin David (formerly of Performing Songwriter); editor Rick Taylor (Performing Songwriter, American Media, Inc.); creative director Terrill Thomas (T13 Media, AtomFilms); senior editor Chris Neal (Performing Songwriter, American Media, Inc.); technology editor Dave Jones (Performing Songwriter); and renowned photographer Kent Kallberg.
