IndieCentralMusic.com was made for the love of all things great about the indie music scene. Led by 4 senior editors, ICM is run as a community of indie lovers who invest their time into giving worthy artists a shot at the spotlight. Being able to provide coverage of amazing gigs whilst also digging into music communities to find the incredible hidden talent, we pride ourselves on being an online media outlet for the biggest fans of the smallest bands, but also by providing ICM as the central hub for everything indie.

Meet our Senior Editors!
