As previously mentioned, in order to keep this blog running and growing, and provide better coverage than ever, the Troubadour Tribune is changing.
Effective immediately (and informally since returning about a week ago), the focus of our coverage will be narrowed. For the foreseeable future, we will only be covering the following singer-songwriters and their world (in alphabetical order):
- Jackson Browne
- Carole King
- Joni Mitchell
- Carly Simon
- Cat Stevens (now Yusuf)
- James Taylor
While it saddens me to leave out a number of the singer-songwriters not listed above, this should allow for more informed and knowledgeable posting and should help prevent burn-out.
Additionally, the Troubadour Tribune is actively seeking to expand its staff. If you have extensive knowledge of the music and/or life of one or more of the above listed singer-songwriters, and have strong writing skills with opinions to share, you might have a future in blogging with the Troubadour Tribune!
The Troubadour Tribune is a fast-growing blog fulfilling a niche barely covered elsewhere in any focused capacity: the singer-songwriters of the 1970s. The vast majority cover one artist in particular or a wider spectrum of rock and roll and/or pop music. In the very short (over 1 week since we’ve been back) and erratic (a year and a half hiatus following the original 2 months of activity) life of this blog, the Troubadour Tribune has received hundreds of unique visitors a day, and has previously been approached by public relations firms regarding coverage for their clients. If all goes even roughly according to plan, this is only the beginning.
Applicants should be willing to commit to posting at least once a week. While experience with blogs is not necessary, it will help. This is currently a non-paying position. The Troubadour Tribune is also interested in guest-bloggers, for those interested but with limited availability. Email here with your qualifications and a writing sample.
Thank you to all those who have visited, linked to our site, posted comments and written in with support.
