Hey! I’m Isabelle Herring and I am a alternative music writer based in the UK. I focus primarily on rock, metal and pop punk music. I have over 3 years experience writing both for Highwire Magazine and my own music blog, Sound Smash Magazine.  

I created Sound Smash in late 2020 as I wanted more experience and exposure in the music journalism industry and to get my name more widely known. It was an absolute no brainer for me as rock music is such a huge part of my everyday life! Download Festival is such an avid part of my yearly schedule!

If you are an up and coming artist/band or interested in working with me, send me a message at [email protected]
