The Write Reviews
Welcome to The Write Reviews! The website dedicated to underground artists and committed to assisting in the expansion of those artists while providing fans with the most up-to-date information and honest, unbiased reviews on the internet.
The Write Reviews was founded in April of 2015 and was originally intended to be a simple blog for album reviews. Within weeks, it was apparent that The Write Reviews would be so much more. After only four weeks in its existence, there were over twenty albums on a list waiting to be reviewed.
Three months after its creation, The Write Reviews had nearly thirty-five albums on the review list and was closing in on twenty albums that had a track by track breakdown posted on the website. By the time The Write Reviews had reached its six-month mark, there were forty-five albums on the review list and approximately thirty albums had been reviewed on the website. This was when Warren Peace, the owner and only contributing author at the time, knew The Write Reviews was more than a simple blog and needed to be treated as such.
Within a week, The Write Reviews expanded by adding Artist of the Month, Featured Emcees, and The Interviews sections on the site. Around the same time, The Write Reviews released its second promotional compilation album in a series titled The Renaissance.
With such a long list of albums to review, The Write Reviews developed a way to help artists ‘jump ahead’ on the list, shortening the artist’s wait for a review drastically, by creating different promotional/review packages and allowing the artists wishing to speed up the process by simply selecting the package that best suited their needs. Artists really enjoyed the new options and additional sections added to the site, taking advantage of the ability to jump ahead on the list right away.
As the first year came to an end, The Write Reviews saw three more events emerge from within its confines. The first was the 2016 Own The Throne contest, the first of its kind hosted by The Write Reviews, Menace Made Entertainment, Deific Ink, and GetMerchNow. The next event was the third installment of The Renaissance compilation album. The Write Awards brought the year to a close, seeing several underground artists win awards and get recognized for their hard work, dedication, and talent. There were 42 albums reviewed on the website during this first year.
The second year proved to be huge in several ways for The Write Reviews. Several events conspired during this second year, including several review/promotional package giveaways that gave a chance for artists to win a review/promotional packages for free. This year was one of the most productive years for the website, with 54 album reviews being posted. This was possible because of two additional writers joining Warren Peace as a part of The Write Reviews’ staff.
The Write Reviews experienced a very turbulent third year. Many obstacles and misfortunate events occurred, including the two writers who had joined during the second year quitting without notice, and two other writers pledging to join the staff but never producing any content. Another writer joined the staff and actually produced two reviews, but had to take a new job offer and could not dedicate the time needed to continue on the website staff. Not only did Warre Peace have to deal with juggling assignments at the last minute without warning, he also lost his older brother to a drug overdose and endured an intense, rather long, custody battle. Regardless, The Write Reviews won five awards from four different websites during the third year. Those awards include a Top 100 Music Blog by Feedspot, a Top 100 HipHopBlog by Feedspot, a Top 100 Independent Music Blog by Musicaroo, one of the Top 20 Music Blogs of 2017 by Ukulele Music Info, and one of the Top Popular Blogs To Follow in 2018 by TierraGamer.
Now entering the fourth year of operation, The Write Reviews plans on becoming better than ever before…
To help artists reach their full potential and spread the word about their music to as many people as possible
Our Mission for 2017-2018
To review at least seventy albums, attract one and a half times the traffic to the website from the previous year, and make sure every artist who gets reviewed feels like we have fulfilled “Our Purpose”.
True artists feel they can never create perfect art, yet have an undying passion to do so. Artists welcome other perspectives, simply because humans enjoy the attention. The Write Reviews aims to be the constructively critical perspective for these artists.
