About Us is a music website started in January 2009. The ultimate in hipster blogging, the aim of the site is to showcase new and upcoming music – as independent and fresh as possible – to bring a constant stream of the latest indie music to our readers. We’re less of a ‘look at this new music video’ news site, and more of a ‘this band is important to me and this is why it should be important to you’ opinion site.

While the site was founded, and is based in South Africa, its readership is mostly split between SA and the United States, with Europe being our third biggest base.

Being at the forefront of music means our readers want to be at the forefront of retail and commercial trends too. They don’t say no to listening to something we recommend, even if it’s completely unknown by them. We aim to carry that trust through to our sponsors. The A Thousand Guitars online presence in countries like America, Canada and England mean that there is great potential for international brand exposure too, with no added effort.
