The Brains Behind The Burning Bush

No, this is not a post about Karl Rove. :) Or Moses. I'm simply a redhead.
In case you didn't notice, there's some more information on the sidebar as well.

If you'd like to get into contact with me (Kate), ask questions, or submit music, you should be reading this instead.
Additionally, should you have the urge to criticize my writing, mock my poor grammar, typos, whatever - I highly encourage you do so, being a lover of criticism. Write a comment on the offending post or shoot me an e-mail at theglorioushum (at) gmail (dot) com.


The Glorious Hum was created in 2005 by a awkward un-hipster-like girl named Kate who needed to let off some steam. Intended initially as a Politics and general ramblings sort of blog, by 2006 it had morphed into something else entirely. Almost immediately after seeing Belle and Sebastian in concert for the first time in March 2006, Kate began to write about music on TGH more so than before. To her surprise, people actually started to read the darn thing.

After arriving at Oberlin College in the Fall of 2006, Kate decided to quit the blog in exchange for exploration into non-indie music and, more importantly, a social life. By February of 2007 personal circumstances and an enduring love of music caused her to return to the blog with a newfound appreciation for exactly how awesome writing about music really is.

*These are more or less my favorite posts - each one is an attempt to dissect why it is that I like a particular song.*
-This isn't complete, not even a tiny bit. I'm still going back through my old posts (still as recent as August) and adding this label.-
