LGR is owned and run by Yvonne Kiely. A blend of music writing, research, and commentary, this publication has its roots in Ireland and its eyes and ears in the global music industries.

For independent things, and words that maybe sounded better in my head. Pitches and demos welcome: lgrsounds[at]gmail[dot]com
