Don’t Watch Me Dancing was the name of my blog, but at this point it mainly serves as a portfolio for my (Tara Joshi’s) journalism originally published elsewhere.

I am currently London-based and work as an editorial and curation assistant at 7digital as well as freelancing for a variety of publications (Observer New Review, Noisey, Crack, gal-dem, the Quietus – the latter of which I am the hip hop and R&B columnist for). I lived in Dublin for four years and was nominated in 2015 for an Irish National Student Media Award in the category of Arts & Pop Culture Features writing. I recently completed an MA in Newspaper Journalism from City, University of London.

Aged fifteen I started my first, cringey music blog, through which I interviewed bands such as Bombay Bicycle Club and Los Campesinos! and wrote exuberantly gushing reviews of numerous acts. More of the same has followed on Don’t Watch Me Dancing. I have also helped judge the 2011, 2013 and 2014 Glastonbury Emerging Talent Competitions.

It’s called ‘Don’t Watch Me Dancing’ after the Little Joy song (below), but also because the sentiment is very “me”.
