Gusher exists to carve out a space for intelligent, creative and compelling dialogue about rock and roll.
Bringing the ideas of world class, non-male writers to the forefront in the form of nuanced, (mostly) longform storytelling, Gusher breathes new life into the canon of rock criticism in each thoughtfully-curated, playfully-designed annual edition.
Contributors to Gusher have written for the likes of The New Yorker, The New York Times, The Guardian, The Fader, The Saturday Paper, Vice, Jezebel and Rookie Magazine, among others.

It’s not about women, which is an important distinction. It does not ask ‘what’s it like to be a woman in music’, but rather, gets to the nitty gritty of the story, the real guts and bodily fluids of it, to fill in the gaps that the mainstream media leaves… Gusher takes being a woman (or non binary, queer, poc) almost for granted. In fact, it’s almost not even about music at all; these things are the hook for untold stories, experiences, talent, and knowledge.
