I'M CHERIE HU—
A PROUD CITIZEN OF THE
I run Water & Music, an independent media ecosystem fueled by big ideas at the intersection of music and technology.
The current pillars of this ecosystem are a weekly email newsletter that reaches over 5,000 subscribers, and an interview podcast featuring leaders, entrepreneurs and artists driving change in the music industry. Both properties stay afloat thanks to generous supporters on Patreon.
I'm also an experienced freelance writer with bylines in Billboard, Forbes, NPR Music, Columbia Journalism Review, Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, Resident Advisor, Music Business Worldwide, Variety and many other publications.
I am currently working on a book for Bloomsbury Academic's Alternate Takes series about the parallels between music careers and tech entrepreneurship.
