We're excited to introduce you to J. Gabriel Boylan, who this week joined our staff as culture editor.
Gabe comes to us from Harper's Magazine, where he was an assistant editor. We got to know him first when he began writing about music for The New York Observer a few years ago. Before Harper's he spent a few years as an associate editor at Sherman's Travel magazine, while along the way becoming a prolific arts, culture, and especially music writer for The Barnes & Noble Review, The Boston Globe, Bookforum, Emusic, Magnet, More Intelligent Life, The Nation, The National, New York, The New York Observer, The Philadelphia Independent, The Philadelphia Inquirer, Philadelphia Weekly, Salon, Spin, Stop Smiling, Vibe and lots of other places. He recently wrote about John Wesley Harding for Capital.
He's from Bethlehem, Penn. and went to Haverford College, and got his start as an intern at the very skinny regional broadsheet The Express-Times of Lehigh Valley, and later at the Philadelphia Weekly and the very beautiful biweekly superbroadsheet The Philadelphia Independent. He's been back and forth a bit between New York and Philly since first coming here 12 years ago.
Gabe's main job will be to help us build up our culture writing and reporting, recruiting new writers and directing coverage. And in the future, when he's got the desk all set up, you'll be seeing his byline too.
We're honored to have Gabe join us.
