The staff

There are a lot of things you can call us; reviewers, tastemakers, scum and musicians to name but a few. Basically we are the ones who will listen to your stuff and pass on our opinions.

Jamie Blackburn - Creator & Reviewer

With a solid few years on the music scene I have been writing and performing fairly prolifically. A passion for music and a drive to empower independent musicians pushed me towards establishing and working for Howl.

Ian Astill - Reviewer & Moderator

Ian has been on the scene for longer than he would care to admit. A degree level of musical education from the RNCM and musical directorship of the Castletown Metropolitan Silver Band makes Ian the most over-qualified reviewer here at Howl.

Juan Christian - Procurement & Events

Juan is responsible for a lot of good in the Manx music scene. From playing in bands as a teenager through to owning and managing the last bastion of live music in the south, Juan lives to help the music scene thrive... And sell booze. That's his job
