Muso's Guide

Muso's Guide

Muso's Guide or musosguide is a UK-based online magazine. It was launched in 2003, and has been re-launched three times. It is an editorially independent magazine.



Muso's Guide was first launched on June 30, 2003, by then amateur journalist, Holly Noseda.

According to the site’s About Us[1] page, “it was launched for a number of reasons, namely the lack of coverage of classic music alongside new releases, the oh-so-obvious press release drivel in a lot of music mags at the time, the desire to create a website full of city guides with music tourists in mind and the desire to get to listen to promo CDs all day.”


The online magazine has 182 registered contributors,[2] but a smaller fraction of these are active.

In 2003, then 16, Catherine Wilson became an active contributor for Muso's Guide. In 2005, she became Content Editor and later News/Live Editor.

In 2008, Natalie Shaw joined as a writer and that same year became another Content Editor and then Reviews/Features Editor.

Both Wilson and Shaw have left their editing roles, but Shaw continues to contribute.

Greg Salter is the current Reviews Editor. Louise Coles is the current Features Editor. Paul Brown is the current Live Editor. Russell Warfield is the current Singles Editor. Holly Seddon née Noseda remains Editor-in-Chief.


In November 2009, Muso's Guide was shortlisted for Best Digital Publication and Best Blog in the Record of the Day Awards.[3]


The original version of the website was produced using Microsoft FrontPage and each new article had to be manually created, there was no content management system.

The next version was launched in 2004 and had a PHP content management system.

Another version was launched in 2008, and was built using WordPress.

The latest version was launched in 2010, and was built using WordPress.

Offline activities

On 30, October 2009, it put on its first Pic n Mixx[5] event at the Buffalo Bar in London. The event's promotion was bolstered by Everett True contributing a mix tape.[5]

On 20, January 2010, it hosted its tips for 2010 Cats and Cats and Cats, Stairs To Korea and Ute at The Monarch.

In June 2009, days after Michael Jackson died, Muso's Guide editor, Natalie Shaw, was invited onto Sky News to discuss the singer's musical legacy and impact.
