Ideally, I'm looking for someone who is involved with the music scene, or is an enthusiast. Somebody who can add a decent news angle and in some cases put their own review or spin on artists. This could be new music reviews, gigs, new songs, albums, videos etc.
I'm happy to leave the artist and topic to the writer, so this could be a fun job too, if you are a music enthusiast.
Artist wise, I prefer up-and-coming musicians etc. I have found that covering massive artists and names doesn't seem to work very well, as the internet is often quite saturated with news from those guys. Musicians that have a good following and ones that would appreciate the write-up or review are the one's I like to target. Also, ones that may respond on social networks and share the love.
Apart from that, I would leave the writer to decide the rest.
To start with I would like to try 10 and see how we go on. If it works out I'm glad to carry on.
