I’m Zoë Madonna.
I graduated from Oberlin College in 2015 and moved to Boston. I worked for a year in international customer service at Hachette Book Group, and I’ve been working as a staff music critic of the Boston Globe since Halloween 2016. I review classical and pop music, mostly.
I live in Teele Square, in Somerville, MA. I’m a fan of this, because many of my friends live there, I get to live with two excellent humans and my feline assistant, and it’s close to these things I like.
I write about music for various outlets. These days I’m most frequently contributing to the Globe (of course), but I’ve also been in I CARE IF YOU LISTEN, VAN Magazine, Q2 Music’s website, Boston Musical Intelligencer and Early Music America Magazine.
In my spare time, I knit (if that wasn’t obvious from the blog’s title), read, play various games, teach myself languages, blues dance, and contra dance. I also enjoy singing shape note, and I play accordion in the contra dance band Chimney Swift.
