What is the Cultural Reset?

 'The Cultural Reset (TCR)' is an organization that seeks to uplift the voices, artistic expression, and industry experiences of POC and LGBTQ+ artists navigating the music industry. Through conducting intimate, informational interviews with talent and publishing written reviews of album releases, TCR hopes to embolden underrepresented creatives and industry professionals to make a space for themselves in the music industry. 

Join us in resetting the industry.
