Australian music tastemakers

Recognised as one of the Top 20 Australian Music Blogs of 2020, Music Is My Muse (MIMM) are the go-to tastemakers for all things Queensland music.

Born from a love of trawling the internet for local tunes, we live, breathe and devour local music like a kid let loose in a sonic candy store. And since our inception, we’ve been making good on our mission to bring Queensland music to the masses, acting as a bridge between hundreds of thousands of lovers of local music, and emerging artists.

Committed to helping our readers find their new favourite band in their very own backyard, we scope out the finest musical talent from the Sunshine State, to serve up a weekly smorgosboard of exclusive premieres, interviews, reviews and news that gives anyone who says Sydney and Melbourne are the happening music scenes in Australia, a run for their money.

From being one of the first media outlets to cover artists like Eliza & The Delusionals, Isabel and Being Jane Lane before they became breakout acts, we’ve got a knack for unearthing homegrown talent first, and have earned a reputation for giving quality artists a fair go.

“Music Is My Muse is a unique and dynamic platform, encouraging and showcasing artists at every stage of their career while maintaining a burgeoning community of music lovers since 2015.”

The Soundcheck

Founded in 2015 by Editor, Mimm Steele, we’re here to revolutionise music media; evening the playing field as a free press in an industry dominated by a ‘pay for play’ model. We pride ourselves on taking a grass-roots approach and have created a community of like-minded individuals (musicians and readers alike) who are not only consumers of, but also contributors to, our content. You can meet our entire team here.

As a supportive network for artists you won’t find any negative articles on our site – we believe solely in spreading the love!
