Episode 4: Music Reviewer for the Sydney Morning Herald and Rolling Stone Australia, Jessie Cunniffe.

Jess Cunniffe, Music Love

Jessie Cunniffe is a music reviewer who has been providing album reviews for five years for the Sydney Morning Herald, and more recently, Rolling Stone Australia. Jess is from the Blue Mountains, NSW and one day when she was 19 years old and at the University of Western Sydney, she attended a lecture with Bernard Zuel who is the music editor for the SMH. She handed him a music review of Missy Higgins' album The Ole' Razzle Dazzle, which had been published in a local newspaper. He took it home, read it, and invited Jess to be one of his reviewers. In this conversation with Julie Kerr, Jess discusses the art of music reviewing and her thoughts on the future of music journalism. She also talks about her other music job which is as a piano teacher, and her full time study load completing her Masters in teaching so she can teach high school students.
