Hello, my name is Tanyel Gumushan.
I am a freelance music journalist and PR, and a blogger!
As well as gushing/crying over shows and cast announcements whilst running Cheeky Little Matinee, I write words for Clash, NME, The Guardian, DIY, HERO and Gigslutz. From 2017 - 2018, I was also the Music Editor of tmrw magazine, where I successfully published in seven editions and secured print cover interviews with Little Mix and Niall Horan as well as managing the online content of two full features per day. This saw me interview Sabrina Carpenter, Machine Gun Kelly, Dua Lipa, Tom Odell, and more.
In addition, I freelance in Public Relations and my clients include Universal Music and Stay Loose PR. I work with emerging artists, usually on their debut release, to put together biographies and press releases. Namely, I have worked with Ramz on the song that earned his Brit Award nomination.
I was awarded the Wilko Johnson Award for Young Writers in 2016 and received UK Music's Outstanding Music Graduate Award in 2019.
Oooh, and give me a follow on Twitter, here!
