    Happy New Year Everyone! 2020 marks a very special milestone for me. I have now been a music journalist officially for 20 years! It all started with a review of a Beck concert. At the time I was working as a production assistant for the news station KCOY in Santa Maria, CA. I went to see Beck at the Santa Barbara Bowl. The next day I started reading my diary entry to everyone at work. I was encouraged by the news anchors, directors and producers to submit my entry to the local newspaper, The Santa Maria Times. To my surprise they published it and not only that asked me if I would be interested in writing music reviews for their arts and entertainment magazine “Venue.” I accepted and six months later they hired me on as staff! And so began my journey…Stay tuned through 2020 for my career highlights I’m so excited to share with you! For all the nostalgic reflections find me on https://www.facebook.com/brooke.trout.79
