About IM



Exploring Music that is
Old, New, and Timeless

The focus of this site is on compelling artists: performers, designers, producers, engineers, industry professionals, and more -- the people who create and promote music that is Indispensable.

Discovering emerging artists, paying tribute to established musicians, and probing the motivations and ideas of those who contribute is my raison d'etre.  Look for monthly new music, new features, and mildly opinionated news when the mood strikes.

Indispensable Music & playMYmusic.FM

Indispensable Music Founder / Editor Kristine England and playMYmusic.FM's Founder Rosie G. first met in the days of yore while working at Blue Note Records. Their mutual passion for music that spans decades, genres, and locales fuels this partnership. Both are committed to promoting new artists and celebrating creativity that's often overlooked.  

Rosie's experience as an on-air radio personality inspired her to create playMYmusic.FM, and Kristine jumped in to create both the site and content for playMYmusic.FM's online presence, before handing the reins to Rosie. After the launch of Indispensable Music, the two decided to partner again on New Music Mondays, a weekly presentation of a new indie release they can both agree upon (Sure, they've been friends forever, and their tastes overlap more often than not, but disparities can and do happen.). 

The two continue to plot new ventures for the future. All will be revealed.
