The LA Music Blogcast — the official podcast of LA Music Blog — posts on the Blog every Friday with me, David “DJ” Fisch, co-host/Blog writer Marcus Slater, and musician Naomi Robin. If there are any musical topics or questions that you would like to hear us talk about on future episodes – and likely have them answered by musical guests and industry professionals – please let us know by leaving a comment below or on our Facebook and tweeting us on Twitter with #LAmbCast.


Mary Bonney has written many pieces for LA Music Blog over the years, and a particularly striking one was her recent article on being a female music journalist. This was the impetus for her to produce, act, and sing in a Kickstarter-fundraised short film called Break: The Musical (the trailer for which you can watch below). When we heard Mary wanted to head down to TuneIn Studios in Venice to join us for an episode of the LA Music Blogcast to talk about her experiences in creating the short, we can admit that we squealed a little.

Mary hopped on the mic to chat with us about the short, what it takes to be vigilant in music journalism and in the industry, and how her experiences in both music and film have impacted her career. Concert-going aside, she, like both Marcus Slater and myself, has a deep-seated passion for music, and we dive into that for a good 45 minutes on this week’s episode of the LA Music Blogcast!
