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 thirteen or so years. A general fan of musical noise in all formats. And beer. Real tasty, lovely 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". @avppriceyfchttps://twitter.com/avpriceyfc




SIMON KIMBERLEY (Beer & Brewery reviews)


"Well what can I say about me, I have an eclectic outlook on life be it my musical tastes or beers I drink, but lately I appear to be a full weight beer nerd and am happy to be so. Regular at ArcTanGent Festival in Somerset for music on the post rock side of the street, but am happy to listen to anything if it is good. On the rare occasions I have to be sensible I am an independent councillor where I live......the pic is me a little fresh in Berlin." @SimonWKimberley




GARETH PETTMAN (Beer & Brewery reviews)


'I'm an exiled Southerner who moved to Leeds over a decade ago, and I've watched the Beer scene in Yorkshire slowly develop into one of the best in the Country. I write about Bars, Breweries and Beers, both local and further afield, and like my musical tastes I keep an open mind for new ideas and experiences' (You can also find Gareth and his words here). @coluleeds



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.
