Michael Hartt derives great pleasure from speaking to interesting people about interesting things (mostly music), loves a great record store score and will take you on at music trivia anywhere, anytime.

In a previous incarnation, Michael produced a vast array of work for gig and event websites and got to interview heroes such as Anton Newcombe, Gary Numan and Mick Quinn from Supergrass. Since 2011, as well as his full time job, Michael has written freelance for a number of publications, including FasterLouder, The Brag, Tone Deaf, The Music Network, Cool Accidents, Digital Audio Review and more.

Michael also occasionally DJs around Sydney. He specialises in 60s rock and soul, glam, post-punk, jangly indie and Britpop.

Michael is originally from Wollongong but lives in Sydney.
