villin Iowa

Prior to moving to Cedar Rapids and turning attention to Iowa’s music scene, villin (the name: an abbreviated, symmetrically styled version of “Nashvillian”) was a short-lived Nashville-focused music blog that ran briefly in 2014 and again from 2017-2018. In 2022 it became a vehicle for playlists, the villin podcast, and articles focused on the Iowa music scene.

Archived posts from villin’s first iteration are available here:

In 2022 I began using to share original audio/video projects and Nashville music playlists (see also: “What is villin?“). It has since shifted to focus on Iowa music playlists and artist features.

villin originals are available on Bandcamp, Soundcloud, and YouTube:
