The Team – Freelancers


Somehow economical with her words, Rose listens to everything she loves and refuses to be bound by genres.


Tiki Black

Singer-songwriter, broadcaster, author and 1inmusic/WSS founder, Tiki is always wanting to explain the emotional turmoil that a piece sparks in her. This is her homage to songwriters and musicians.


Mateo the wise

a bit political, a bit parental, a bit missing piece and balance keeper. She is the magazine co-editor. The one we curse when a post does not make the cut, or worse a favourite song does not make the top 50…

Chantal Epee

Chantal is a writer, the presidente of AfroDiaspor’Arts and organiser of Paris-based Coeur A Coeur Acoustique, a monthly acoustic music event that brings the audience closer to the artist for a truly artistic tête-à-tête. Her heartfelt wisdom is often borrowed for our reviews and such.

Anja (in negotiation) combines her sensitive multicultural chord and her classical training to give us her take of singer-songwriters’ music for a fresh perspective.

Lally (in negotiation) knows her music whether it is African, European, American. She embraces newness and difference with such natural talent that her nomadic experiences cannot but transpire and complement the WSS family.

Melissa (in negotiation) is the topical mind and philosopher. She brings some much needed time and space boundaries to give to the music some much needed political (historical and beyond) contextualisation.


Alan Walters is a music teacher and a true music lover. He is one of those rare fans who encourage and support musicians, shares their achievement and praise their work, a much needed warmth in the artist’s arduous journey in the industry.

Matt Isaacs (in negotiation) is basically a music encyclopedia. Just check him out on Facebook or on canalside radio where he presents and produce his own show.

Guest writers are varied and their names will be found on their articles.
