About Us

Gusher is an annual print magazine about rock music, written and created entirely by women and genderqueer creatives. Showcasing diverse voices in music journalism, Gusher aims to foster an intelligent and inclusive dialogue about rock music.

Gusher presents unique perspectives to breathe new life into the canon of rock criticism that, can at times, feel stagnant and uninspired.

As a print publication, Gusher is about moving away from the current fast-paced nature of online music journalism, instead embracing more nuanced and enduring discussions about music and culture. Gusher features a variety of content, including long-form music criticism, in-depth artist profiles, thoughtful cultural criticism, personal essays, artwork, photo journals, comics, tutorials and more.

A fully crowdfunded project, our first issue launched in April 2016, showcasing work from writers and artists that have contributed to the likes of The New Yorker, The New York Times, The Monthly, The Age, The Saturday Paper and Rookie Magazine. This issue sold out within 2 months of its release.
