Album Review: ‘Pioneer’ by The Band Perry

Peaking at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart in 2010, the quadruple platinum single “If I Die Young” skyrocketed The Band Perry to fame. Two and a half years after the release of their self-titled debut album, the trio of Perry siblings is back with “Pioneer,” which encompasses their signature sound of ’70s-inspired rock ’n’ roll mixed with a bit of sassy bluegrass twang.

Album Review: ‘Shadows’ by Lenka

About

Ashley Jakubczyk

People are complex. One word can't accurately define the entirety that makes up a person. Each individual has different aspects of their personality, a different outlook on living, and, most importantly: everyone has their own unique story to tell.

This is what has drawn me to writing. People, and their stories, are utterly fascinating. You can learn so much about a person and the world we live in by just taking the time to have a conversation with someone.

I am a young, optimistic and experienced writer with experience in journalism, internal corporate communications, and public relations.

Journalism wise, I specialize in music reviews and food-related stories, but have also had the privilege and opportunity to profile some very talented individuals in various disciplines.

My editorial contributions include pieces for TakePart, Thought Catalog, The Daily Breeze newspaper, the Peninsula People Magazine, and the UCLA Daily Bruin. My work has also been featured on Yahoo! News and the Christian Science Monitor.

I am looking to the future with optimistic eyes. There are so many stories out there, and I hope to have the privilege to tell some of them.
