IckMusic is a labor of love – a web site I started in December of 2004. I needed an outlet, a place to share and document my lifelong love of music. I’ve spent the better part of my life especially obsessed with the music of Prince and Bruce Springsteen. But I love it all. I’ve lived outside of Phoenix, Arizona since New Year’s Day 1993.
Long ago and worlds apart, Mark Ward took the sword from the Lady in the Lake and became a Holy Knight in service of Her Majesty, Brit Rock. Based out of Minneapolis, Mark also spends a fair amount of time in his other favorite city, Chicago, in total worship of the likes of Kelly Jones, Alex Turner, Luke Pritchard, Billy Lunn, and Richard Ashcroft. Music crushes his heart in the most wonderful and interesting ways thus his love affair with it will never end.
You can find Mark’s latest posts at his music site, Markie’s Music.
Michael Parr joined Ickmusic in 2007. Based out of Danbury, Connecticut, he has spent the better part of his adult life sharing, recommending and talking about music. Covering everything from obscure Canadian folk-rock to the most mainstream pop, he is a fan of music in all forms (except reggaeton, because who really likes reggaeton?).
