Alexandra Graber is a Journalist, Writer, Blogger, and dabbler in Booking. She is currently based in Salt Lake City, but has resided in Boston, Nashville, California, Colorado and will soon be living in Brooklyn, NY. Alexandra has been published for music specific work in both SLUG Magazine and Jones Rocktography, and also has published work in unrelated fields for Outsider Journal.
Alexandra’s writing career was sparked when she was living in Truckee, CA. A friend who was editor in chief for a local magazine asked her if she’d like to interview the Black Lips at an upcoming concert in Sacramento. Although the job fell through, she decided to take the leap and move to Boston in the Spring of 2014 to pursue a career in journalism. In Boston she began writing a weekly column in Jones Rocktography, a photojournalism blog by Larnel Jones, called This Week In Music – highlighting what worthy bands were playing in Boston that week and why you should go see them. She also enrolled in a Writing Expository course at Harvard Ext School in the Spring of 2015.
During that time Alexandra was working at local Boston music venues Brighton Music Hall and Paradise Rock Club. She began interacting with a number of musicians daily and soon went on tour with a band she met through her work. She moved to Nashville in the Summer of 2015, which was cut short and led her to Salt Lake City through a series of unexpected events. In Salt Lake City Alexandra began writing for SLUG Magazine. Through SLUG Magazine she has had the opportunity to interview a number of noteworthy bands, including Cherry Glazerr, Max Pain & the Groovies, and Methyl Ethel, she has also covered live shows and album reviews. She has been writing for SLUG Mag for over year.
In the Summer of 2016 Alexandra teamed up with Cesar Reyes and the two psych enthusiasts began hosting a local Psych Nite every Tuesday at the Jackalope Lounge. This was her first taste at booking shows, promoting, and organizing live events with touring musicians. Some of the bands she booked include Night Shapes, Greenbeard, Cosmonauts, Dead Shakes, Heaters, among others.
Since 2017 has gotten underway, Alexandra is focusing most of her energies on writing, creating content for her blog, and discovering new music. She is very much embedded in the local SLC music scene. Her intention of moving to NYC is to further delve into a larger music scene with more diversity and have the opportunity to live in a culturally, artistically rich city.
Catch her in Salt Lake until June 2017 at most indie, dreamy, garage, or psych shows. Her work is not limited to music only, but certainly has a music focused approach. If you are interested in working with Alexandra you can reach her through email – firstname.lastname@example.org. Collaborating and creating are two of her favorite things.
