About Meredith Connelly

Meredith Connelly is a freelance writer who has been with Noiseporn and Symphonic Distribution for the past three years. She mainly writes editorial content focusing on music news and music in pop culture, but also produces the occasional feature article on what’s new and now in the world of EDM. When she is not scouring the web for topic ideas, Meredith can be found indulging her peculiar music taste—which ranges from Japanese idol-metal to deep house and back again—or unsuccessfully trying to convince herself to work on her novel about 1940s housewives combatting the zombie apocalypse.
