About Us

Everyone knows that scene from “Taken” where Liam Neeson mentions having “a very particular set of skills.” We at Unplugged were able to relate to that statement, albeit on a less “badass” level. We were working for publications that weren’t challenging us and began getting bored with our own design, writing and photography abilities.

Unplugged Magazine was established in January, 2013, because of our combined love of journalism and music, and from our selfish desire to share the music we enjoy. We wanted to showcase local acts and write about national bands we are into. Most of all, we wanted to immerse ourselves in the music community by using the abilities we already have.

Each month we interview local artists here in Sacramento, as well as national acts that we feel are worth sharing. We write about albums and topics we believe people may like. We share our stories and the stories of musicians we want everyone to know about. What started off as a simple endeavor is now a 20-page outlet for our creativity, and for musicians to have a voice in our local scene and share what they do.

Unplugged is:
Co-editor-in-chiefs: Steven Condemarin and Alisha Kirby
Writers: Josh Jurss, Daniel Romandia, Ashli Jade, Jorden Hales
Copy Editors: Robert Aguilar, Megan Houchin
Photographers: Allen Dubnikov, Jesika Gatdula, Elmer Martinez
