Amy Sciarretto has attended approximately 2,000 concerts in her lifetime—One Direction were louder than Slayer, but only due to the screaming girls.
She wrote for AP back in the ‘00s, once profiling Lucero without being too much of a fangirl, which was a challenge. She has scribbled for Kerrang! TeenPeople, Spin.com, Bustle, Revolver, ABC News Radio, Outburn and many other outlets over the years.
She covers these things: Metal. Rock. Music. Fashion. Beauty. Movie.
She worked at Roadrunner Records for 12 years, doing radio and then publicity for everyone from Killswitch Engage to Slipknot.
She is “mom” to Higgins, a 5yo English bulldog, and spends any free time that doesn’t involve writing about music or promoting bands walking shelter dogs.
