Bianca Valentino

As many of you guys already know, Jhonny and I are getting married in a few short weeks! To say that I am excited would be an understatement—I’m beyond excited! We’re having a DIY Mexican fiesta! Work and writing commitments, plus all the wedding planning, has been taking up my time of late, hence it being a little quiet around here at Conversations With Bianca. I have lots of amazing things in the works to share with you guys coming up soon though!

In-depth interviews with: musician and artist Guy Blakeslee of the amazing The Entrance Band; synth-punk pioneer Scott Ryser of Units; Irish rockers And So I Watch You From Afar—“Solidarity, Positivity, leaving a trail of sonically destroyed venues and new friends in our wake.”; Tim Nordwind and Drea Smith of PYYRAMIDS; the artists behind The Flower of Fixed Ideas and, my girl May from UK punk band Shot! (pictured below) + lots more!
