WHAT IS FOURCULTURE?

Art, music, literature and compelling societal views that live outside of the box: these are the four pillars of culture that create the world we live in. Fourculture brings to light artists of all mediums.

THE ARTIST D

The Artist D has been performing online since the mid 1990’s; a relic from the cam show age before social networking was a network, advocate for the rights of the underground, author, painter, columnist, raconteur, provocateur and host of UP! All Night, a radio show broadcast weekly with Fourculture’s Creative Director Ann Marie. D has always been catering to the freaks, geeks and black sheep of society, he makes the extraterrestrials of culture feel right at home on Planet Earth.

ANN MARIE PAPANAGNOSTOU

Ann Marie likes to make things pretty. This award-winning designer loves to lose herself in the creative process and is psyched to work alongside the crazy cool individuals who fuel her artistic fire. When she’s not watching cat videos, Ann Marie is most content listening to new music and consuming salt & vinegar chips. She writes occasionally and is a fierce twitter connoisseur.

 

Music Editor

PAUL DAVIES

As a lover of music, cats and chocolate it was inevitable that Paul would end up writing for us. A tireless singer/songwriter from the UK with a tiresome number of music projects, his worrying knowledge of the 80s and the evolution of crisps and confectionery (or chips and candy for our US readers) has seen him both gain jobs and lose friends.

MARGUERITE O’CONNELL

Marguerite is passionate about words. When not with her 3 boys, she will inevitably be found either reading or writing; always with her latest, favorite music playing on repeat. An inveterate and insatiable researcher (some might say obsessive), she loves using her mad skills for finding the obscure to share her passion for art, music, and words. She also loves bold coffee and dark chocolate.

DEREK O’NEAL

“You have to hear this song” is a phrase you’ll often hear from Derek. His fierce music obsession began at a young age, an age when playlists were captured on cassette off the radio. As a writer, Derek has been sharing his stories since he was old enough to hold a pencil, which is a big deal since he really dislikes pencils. Today, you can find Derek scouring the web for fresh sounds that both inspire and entertain. Sometimes he takes breaks for coffee and sleep.

MARK SIMPSON

Mark Simpson hails from a small bluey green planet from the Milky Way Galaxy. He is the fourth failed attempt at a daughter by a loving couple that took doctors and nurses so seriously as to actually be them. Brought up on his elder brothers’ musical influences of seventies metal and prog rock, he discovered he was a completely different blood group from his siblings, which allowed his ears to wander off in many and varied directions. This did nothing for his looks but it provided some wonderful sonic sustenance that has soundtracked his life ever since. Although having an ongoing battle with Fate in keeping loved ones on a corporeal plane, he continues to throw words and tunes together in the hope that the mixture should be heavy enough to bruise Fate’s foot if they land in the right place.

JOSH VALLEY

ADAM D

Adam is approximately one half of Photostat Machine. They are a synthpop duo hailing from York, England. When not working on devastatingly handsome pop tunes or writing, you can find him hunkered over a cup of coffee. He likes to smile but isn’t that fond of talking about himself in the third person. “So I’ll stop there,” he added.

 

Chloe at Fourculture Magazine

Chloe

Chloe is from Seattle, the city where hipsters go and live forever. She’s a music junkie, singer and artist. She works best with her “smol” dog in her lap. If she could live at a music festival she would. You can also find her constantly experimenting with makeup, one second she’s a demon, the next second she’s wearing pageant makeup. Overall, she just loves reviewing and listening to music.

DARYA TEESEWELL

Darya Teesewell has been a lot of things, often simultaneously. She’s spent years working in the velvet prison of the Los Angeles movie biz, but nothing is below her line, because she hates lines. Darya travels freely from gender to gender and had made her living as a cinematographer, a writer, a teacher, a shop girl, a union organizer, and she’s ridden in Angelyne’s pink corvette. Oh, does she have a tale to tell.
