A young mum, after studying photography and journalism as a mature student, Nay McArdle began blogging about new Irish music in 2007 on HotPress.com. There she sought to document the many gigs photographed and give insight into local bands. A contributor to a variety of media sources in print and on the web, in 2009 she set up her own independent music blog Harmless Noise with the aim to provide a reliable, high-quality standard of music coverage. The internet’s effect on the music industry has seen widespread changes in how audiences access and share the sounds they enjoy and Nay has been an active advocate of the world-class new music Irish bands have to offer.
