Introducing Tone Deaf


Tone Deaf is one of Australia’s leading authorities on local and international music culture and industry. We have a commitment and passion for supporting the local music community, as well as delivering fun, informative, and hopefully thought provoking insight into the issues affecting music today.

We’re first and foremost obsessive music fans, but most of our team are also music industry professionals, giving us a unique perspective that informs our entire editorial approach.

This allows us to keep a firm finger on the music pulse in Australia and around the world, and permits us to offer a critical take on the music business in our own unique style.

We talk to international artists, local artists, major label artists, and indie artists alike. No artist is too big, no artist is too small. We also have an unrivalled commitment to album and gig reviews, where both quality and quantity are major ingredients.
