ION INDIE MAGAZINE September 2014, Volume 4 - Page 4

Music by DILANA “Woman I Am” Letter from the Editor ION Indie Magazine has enjoyed a meteoric rise in the publishing world. Since our first issue, launched in June of this year, our growth has been a rapid one and our efforts have been embraced by both the artists we feature and our readers alike. In fact, our August issue doubled our readership! It is equally rewarding to hear our artist’s music getting actual airplay by our affiliate broadcasters, and that their appearances in ION’s pages have garnered significant attention for them--translating to real opportunities. We will continue to act as a vehicle to get Independent music read about and heard! Our featured artist for September is the megatalented and inspirational Hip Hop artist CRUCIFIX! ION Indie Magazine is proud to have this rising star grace our cover. CRUCIFIX sat down with journalist JP RAWK and bared his soul for the readers of ION. CRUCIFIX’S unique “slumrock” sound transcends across genre lines with a message for all humanity. Besides his magnetic music, the CRUCIFIX backstory is a riveting one that really struck a chord with this Editor. I invite you to immerse yourself in all things CRUCIFIX in the pages of the September Issue of ION Indie Magazine. We are excited to announce our first artist selected from over 2000 submissions received through our partnership with REVERBNATION, Blues artist LAURA CHEADLE! Journalist J.B. BRIDGES, our RN correspondent reports…Congratulations, Laura! As always, none of this would be possible without the absolute BEST team anywhere! The staff of ION Indie Magazine works countless hours with seemingly tireless dedication to this project, for which, I am most grateful!
