Connor Brady not only loves music; he adores local music. Since January 2015, Brady has tirelessly acknowledged hardworking Utah musicians with his review and feature coverage for SLUG Mag. Though he’s largely a fan of hip-hop and indie rock, Brady has an insatiable appetite for any genre that comes his way. To boot, he is collegial, ardent in his craft and hardworking in his own right with each assignment. This month, Brady penned SLUG’s monthly Localized double feature about Malev da Shinobi and Earthworm & Clësh on pgs. 6–7. Brady is no stranger to writing Localized, and cites those about Mimi Knowles/Static Waves and Freemind Movement/Alyxandri Jupiter as favorites he’s written, alongside a feature about Bboy Federation’s DJ’ing classes. We love Brady’s passion and having him on Team SLUG!
