The Hipster Sanctuary E-Zine is focused primarily on UNSUNG artists of Jazz, Blues and Soul Genres. We’ll profile, explore, interview and publicize information to, commemorate, or uplift the legacy of these artists who gave it their all during their time in the public’s eye. “By Any Medium Necessary”
From time to time, we may have special events recognizing these artists as groups, or individually honoring them. We will also include individuals who contributed to the innovations and quality of the music through Productions, Press, Radio and Film. Artists emerging or still performing on a high level will be acknowledged as well.
We welcome ideas, suggestions,photos, and guest writers to participate as well.
