Sound of Boston is a Boston-based online music publication that focuses on the local music scene.[1][2]



Sound of Boston was founded in 2013 by Knar Bedian and Jonah Ollman, who were both students at Tufts University at the time.[3][4][5]


Sound of Boston was named "Best Local Blog" by the Boston A-List Awards in 2014 and 2016.[6] It also was a Boston Music Awards nominee for "Music Blog of the Year" in 2017,[7] and "Music Publication of the Year" in 2018 and 2019.[8][9][10][11][12]

"Listen Local" Concert Series[edit]

The blog has curated a number of "Listen Local" concerts featuring all-local bills at venues like Brighton Music Hall and O'Brien's Pub.[13][14][15][16]

Neighborhood Sessions[edit]

The Neighborhood Sessions are a recorded acoustic series that were "created as an extension" of the Local Spotlight feature of the website.[17] The series have featured local artists such as Tall Heights, Anjimile, Latrell James, and Ripe.[18] The bands typically perform at least one original song and one cover.[19]
