After spending years at major record labels marketing some of the biggest pop artists during the 1990s, Alan Miller and Alan Sartirana wanted to promote music outside of the boy band/teen queen craze that was taking over America. The result was Filter Music Media, a company that, according to its website, was created to “expose music in new and effective ways, with an unwavering commitment to credibility and integrity.” The company expanded into publishing in 2002 with FILTER magazine, which currently has 85,000 readers and is available on newsstands in over 10 countries.
Eager to share your love of music and writing style with FILTER editors? “Be creative and show us who you are,” said editor-in-chief Pat McGuire. The pub offers opportunities for freelance writers who make lasting impressions.
