Were you able to fully pronounce my tagline? Y’Keal and Deborrie are my middle names, but I am more commonly known as Ishna Hagan. From 9 to 5, I create marketing-driven website copy and eCommerce stores for North American businesses. I am also a published author, most notably for my article, “Gulf Residents Protest, Brace Themselves for Effects of Oil Spill,” and for my WUSA9 online news reports. I’ve similarly written stories for my alma mater, Howard University, and the National Newspaper Publishers Association. All this is to say, writing is no unfamiliarity to me.

Critiquing music, on the other hand, is something I consider exotic. It’s refreshing and therapeutic every time I inhale a melody. It’s the passion I don’t have to explain because you’ll see the grind. It’s a style of art that satisfies my cerebral mind. It’s fun. It’s freeing. It’s life. Evaluating each song, interpreting the verses, and breaking it all down – I love it. –Safe to say,  it is for me. 🙂 Thank you for reading my blog. Let’s chat it up, and feel free to share your thoughts about my critiques or send a song for review. You can send a message via my contact page.
