PETE JACKSON (Chief)


"Music puts me in a good mood. Therefore I like music on ALL OF THE TIME.
Captain of this ship, and all that have sailed through Plus One Magazine over the last fifteen or so years. A general fan of musical noise in all formats. And beer. Real tasty, lovely fresh, craft beer.  Started the magazine down in Nottingham. Relocated to Leeds in 2010."  @plusonemagazine



FAITH CASTLE (Technical and photographer)


"If Pete's the captain, then I guess that makes me the Smee of Plus One - What makes me tick? Riffs, my Rickenbacker 4003, loud noise, live music and red wine. 
Feel very lucky to be in Leeds which has an excellent local music scene with some of the best venues I've ever stepped foot in".  @musicneyeliner




ROBIN CHAMBERLAIN (Photographer)


"Massive music-obsessed nerd, photographer and musician. I spend my time being involved with as much music as possible, whether taking pictures of bands, being in bands, or listening to bands it's never enough. With my chosen career as a freelance photographer I'm constantly around music either in the studio, in the office or on location. With an early exposure to a multitude of different music through my love of skateboarding I've grown up listening to punk, hip-hop, electronic, indie, disco, afro-beat, house, jazz, psychedelia and everything in-between". @83Photography




MIKE PRICE (Album and gig reviews)



"I'm a music loving Brummie exiled in West Yorkshire and loving every minute of it. For nearly a decade I've been championing local bands, constantly in awe of the quality and variety of new talent emanating from the Leeds music scene, surely the best outside London. Long may it continue".

DAVID DICKINSON (Beer & Brewery Reviews)



I have an obsession for beer, and am constantly being told off by the girlfriend for talking about it. Whenever I get a spare second I'm always looking at educating myself further in all things craft beer.  I have a broad taste in music but don't claim to know too much about the current music scene.  Other interests include UFC, NFL and football as well as collecting random objects for my man cave.

JOE PONTING (Music reviews)



Bristol-based music nut with an almost unshakeable belief that Rancid are the best band ever to grace the planet, but that doesn’t mean that my music taste begins and ends with head tattoos – give me anything from Massive Attack to Touche Amore, The Smiths to A Day To Remember, Daft Punk to De La Soul and I’ll wrap my ears around it and maybe, if you’re lucky, give you my opinion on it. Some of those opinions can be found at @JoeDreadspeare, but be prepared to wade through piercing football insights while you’re there.
