Contributors to The New Nine

 
 

  • Emily Treadgold

    Music aficionado and editor-in-chief at The New Nine. I'm most at home at festivals and concerts. I would love to start a band of all Kanye covers all on keys. I'm a dedicated Jack White fan and when I saw him in concert it changed my life. I'd never seen someone so passionate about music and preserving its history. Every project he does I just worship.

  • Kasey Coble

    "Bands > Boys"

    I'm a PR girl in Dallas and contributor for The New Nine. I am a pop culture enthusiastic and spend most of my time thinking about boy bands. In my spare time, you can find me watching reality TV, trying to read books before they become movies and listening to music I bought on iTunes because I'm the only weirdo who doesn't stream music yet. DM me Harry Styles pictures on Twitter and Instagram at @kaseycoble.

  • Beatrice Wong

    I’m an artist currently living in Houston. I got my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Texas in 2012. I spend most of my time watching Netflix with my dog Jude, and trying to not binge eat cake. I am a pretty big One Direction fan, even though I retired my cardboard cutout of Harry Styles a few years ago. It’s socially unacceptable for a 26 year old to have a life size cutout of a 19 year old apparently. You can stalk me on Twitter @BeatriceJWong, on Instagram @beatricejwong, and on Snapchat at beejay218.

  • Holland Behn

    The Austin suburbs raised me. Currently residing in Dallas. I cried when I found out that the new Kia Souls didn’t have CD players. If I could retain math equations the way that I retain music lyrics, I’m sure I’d be a super genius. The first album I bought with my own money was Missy Elliot’s “Under Construction” parental advisory. I was eleven. I thought I was cool. Twitter and Instagram : @Hollz_Says I tweet things. Sometimes music, sometimes current events, sometimes my lunch. You might not like it. But I promise you’ll be entertained by it.

  • Ryann Miller

    I joined the fangirl world in 2005 after scoring VIP passes to Hellogoodbye and The Rocket Summer at House of Blues in Anaheim and never looked back. I'm a Chicago based Behavior Therapist infamous for maxing my credit card on festival passes and concert tickets, and attending half of them solo. Hobbies include singing VERY loud in the car and petting other people's dogs. Find me on Instagram, Twitter, and Snapchat at @RyMill1003.

  • Amanda Dickson

    Where do I begin? I have moved so many times and music is the only thing that has kept me sane. At the age of five I fell in love with the Backstreet boys and have loved music and boys ever since. I just love seeing a group of people captivate a crowd and share their emotions in such an artistic way. Music brings people of all different spectrums together and we all get the beauty of controlling what life changing experiences we subject ourselves to and what music we listen to.

  • Samantha Fong

    March 25 can be noted as a pivotal date in my life. No, it isn't my birthday. For all the 1D fangirls out there, it was the shock of the century when Zayn Malik left the band. As a Zayn girl, my heart broke into a million pieces. I think this hit me harder than any actual breakup. All was forgiven, though, when he coincidentally released his solo album that same day a year later. Also, don't make me choose as I love Z and the band equally. I'm currently in Justin Timberlake's hometown of Memphis, Tennessee working as a personal trainer. If I'm not at the gym, you can more than likely find me at a concert. Feel free to find me on social media. I love meeting fellow fangirls! Twitter : samfonggg, Instagram : samantha_fong, Snapchat : samanthafong

  • Becky Stephenson

    I grew up in the rainy forests of the Pacific Northwest and now live in the equally charming Sonoran Desert. I have a degree in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology and a minor in Botany, which is a lot of words telling you that I am a hardcore nature nerd who spent some serious time in school. When I'm not watching, drawing, or writing about birds and bugs, I can be found singing way-too-passionately in my car, listening to my favorite artists and over-analyzing the lyrics, dancing in ways harmful to myself and others, having my mind blown at concerts, sniffing vintage tees, waxing poetic about the 80s, or otherwise geeking out on music. My first love was Tchaikovsky's "The Nutcracker," but I quickly advanced to bumping "The Little Mermaid" soundtrack on my Fisher Price boombox until the tape fried, which forced me to graduate to the avant-garde stylings of Pure Moods (Volume 1) and this band called The Beatles. After that I fully embraced the post-punk scene of the late 90s and from there exploded outward to love all sorts of music which I will be writing about here.

  • Wade Evans

    Nashville Native, Born and Raised. The best way to describe myself is a mix of Phil Dunphy and Ferris Bueller. Growing up in Nashville I was exposed to all kinds of music but fell in love with Punk Rock and Pop music in high school. My focus is in the undiscovered, but the deserving. I'm the friend that wants to see the opening acts. I'm the friend that sends you music just because I want you to experience it with me. There is nothing more satisfying than someone else enjoying a band or song I'm into. I'm currently doing A&R for a small indie label in Nashville, while also serving as a promoter for many venues in the area. I love Jurassic Park, Blink-182, the 90's, and live music. I also spend my weekend's DJing weddings and cheering on the Vols/Titans/Braves. I showcase music every Wednesday on Spotify through my "Wade's Wednesday" playlist and also contribute to the "Pop Punk's Not Dead" Spotify playlist. Let's connect!
