Welcome to The Indie Files.
My name is Amanda Ash, and I’m a COPA-nominated and SNCR-nominated freelance journalist based out of Vancouver, BC.
I received my Master of Journalism Degree from the University of British Columbia in the spring of 2010.
In the fall of 2010, I was a nominee for a Canadian Online Publishing Award (COPA) in the category of Best Community Feature for my work on the Wiki, and a nominee for the 2010 Society for New Communications Research (SNCR) for their Excellence in New Communications Awards for my work on the Wiki.
I am also a juror for the Polaris Music Prize.
The Indie Files is a music blog dedicated to Canadian independent music. Here you’ll find exclusive band interviews, album reviews, full-length audio interviews, videos, music downloads and contests to keep you up-to-date with Canada’s growing independent music scene.
I hope you enjoy the site. Thanks for reading.
