About Me

My name is Lizzie Manno and I’m from Cleveland, Ohio. I’m a senior studying communication at Mercyhurst University in Erie, Pennsylvania. I plan to work in the music industry in some form, whether it be music journalism, marketing, PR, etc. I love all kinds of music, but I especially love British alternative rock because I grew up on it. I love collecting vinyl records, going to gigs, and sharing my love for music with other people. Besides here on this blog, I have also written about music professionally for the Odyssey and Cleveland Scene Magazine.

Here’s the two large pieces I wrote for Cleveland Scene (in addition to many smaller blurbs):

Indie Rockers Desaparecidos Get ‘Loud, Angry and Catchy’ On New Album

Rock Hall to Screen Documentary about British Punks the Damned
