Alyssa Ladzinski

Music Reporter

All you need to know: I read way too many Kurt Vonnegut novels, follow the New York Rangers a bit too closely, spend time outdoors whenever possible and love my cats Jade and Indigo more than most humans. I’m happiest whenever I’m writing, immersed in music and entertainment culture/ promoting upcoming concerts and practicing yoga and aerial arts–especially when any of the above coincide and can be done outdoors.

I’ve taken on marketing and social media roles for the Times Union Center, Albany Capital Center, Disc Jam Music Festival and Putnam Den. I’ve written for a number of publications including: Music Times, NYS Music, 12ozProphet &, all of which allowed me to elaborate on topics and tunes that I love while wrapping them up in a neat package of influential words and reviews.

I currently help out with social media and PR for Disc Jam and write for NYS Music where I review albums, cover festivals and concerts, and interview emerging and top artists in the jam community.
