About MuseWire

MuseWire™ is an arts, culture, lifestyle and music magazine.

MuseWire combines the MusicIndustryNewswire.com web portal launched back in 2004 with the former Ga-Ga.com magazine into one publication for those interested in art, photography, books, music, film and TV, performing arts, and more.

MuseWire is a publication of Neotrope® established 1983 in California, USA.



MuseWire™ (formerly known as Music Industry Newswire from 2005 to early 2015) is a unique online portal combing a wide variety of original content related to the music business and recording industry, both from the creation and business side and the retail and consumer side. We’re in midst of total revamp of site during April/May 2015.

This online magazine covers:

  • News about companies, products, services in the music and recording industry
  • Original exclusive interviews with musicians, engineers, bands, and people both behind the stage and in front of the audience
  • Hands-on product reviews of new gear, from the latest music players, to keyboards, mixers, and studio recording gear
  • Reviews of music downloads, CDs and next-generation Blu-Ray and HD music/video material

…and through strategic partnerships with other music associations, trade groups and music web portals, we will feature a wide variety of material from unsigned bands, new talent, and breaking superstars (sorry, pardon the hyperbole).

View our staff page for information about our editorial team. We’re all professional musicians, working journalists, gear heads, and/or creative gurus across multiple disciplines. This is no personal blog or impersonal mega-portal, but — we hope — will become a daily destination for anybody who loves making or listening to music in all forms.

We are located in Torrance, California, USA (Los Angeles county). MuseWire is part of the Neotrope® Entertainment Network and is a trademark and service mark of Neotrope. Our company was established in 1983 by Christopher Laird Simmons and was formerly known as Mindset.
