Press Release

Amazon Music Disney Promo

Illustrate Magazine is an independent online music magazine covering a wide range of global alternative, pop, underground and experimental music.

We celebrate and interrogate the most visionary and inspiring, subversive and radical, marginalized and undervalued, past and present in the realms of Avant rock, electronic music, hip-hop, heavy metal, new jazz, improvised music, modern composing, traditional music, and much more.

Passionate, intelligent, and provocative, this magazine is dedicated to battling the mundane and the mediocre. It’s based in the US, but it serves an international readership.

Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them – that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like. -“Lao Tzu”

We Love Music in general, appreciate art, poetry & culture, there is no written constitution, and there is no established editorial policy of inclusion and exclusion. Illustrate Magazine looks out for the most energizing current music across all genres and is dedicated to researching music’s past, present, and future.

We are fairly a new establishment and believe in learning something new every day and are always interested in hearing from new writers, poets, and photographers. If you would like to write or contribute to Illustrate Magazine on a freelance basis, contact us here or text us over the live Messenger app, outlining any particular areas of interest, some suggested feature/review ideas, and enclosing some examples of your writing (either published or unpublished). We are always interested in submissions that consist of monthly reports on the underground or experimental music scenes around the world.

Illustrate Magazine exists in various other forms online. Please check out our socials and playlists and consider subscribing. We thrive to serve you right!
