Case Study

Alright guys I’m Jordan Williams, I am the Founder and Owner of Snake Oil Music News. I am a massive fan of music and finding new bands and artists specifically in the Indie Rock’N’Roll genre proving that Rock’N’Roll is still alive and kicking even though some people would say it finished years ago.

However, we do have a website where you can buy Snake Oil Music News merchandise from T-Shirts, Beanies, Bucket Hats, etc which helps fund equipment that we use for content and any events that we put on.
