Hello, my name is Brady Gerber.
I write about music and other things for New York Magazine and Pitchfork. You can also see me in The New York Times, Rolling Stone, Interview Magazine, McSweeney’s, Lit Hub, and more.
I’m also a copywriter who runs OPE! (the world’s greatest music blog and newsletter).
I’m a Hoosier and former New Yorker now living in Los Angeles.
Here’s what I’m up to—and what I can do for you.
Writing, Journalism & Editorial
Bylines include New York Magazine, Vulture, Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, Stereogum, FADER, SPIN, Interview Magazine, Bandcamp Daily, McSweeney’s, Lit Hub, and Electric Lit.
Digital Copywriting, Content Marketing & PR
I have years of experience working in traditional and digital communications, collaborating with PR and marketing agencies to write and edit press releases, bios, playlists, marketing emails, social media, and other long and short-form copy for 300+ clients including Bruce Springsteen, Carole King, Elvis Costello, St. Vincent, and Bon Iver. It’s hard to condense a compelling call to action into one sentence or visual. I love the challenge.
Bios, Liner Notes & Research
I specialize in interviewing and researching artists and creative professionals to help them tell their stories—what makes us tick, and what drives us to make something? I’ve written bios and notes for CEOs, world-famous classical composers, indie singer-songwriters, and more.
Blogging, SEO & Content Design
On top of freelance writing, I run OPE!, a blog and newsletter that keeps me engaged with music lovers around the world. OPE! continues to grow through weekly longform essays, curated playlists, and writer interviews. Outside of OPE!, I do other various kinds of content marketing and SEO writing using UX and WCAG accessibility standards. I’m certified in Google Analytics 4 by Google and SEO by HubSpot Academy.
Coding, Technical Writing & Documentation
What do you call a baker who doesn’t wear any shoes?
