Jessica Lipsky

is an editor and reporter covering culture, politics and technology for a variety of regional and national publications. Her work has appeared in Newsweek, Salon, Billboard, Remezcla, Vice, Timeline, Thrillist, LA Weekly, EE Times and the San Francisco Chronicle.

Jessica has extensively covered soul, funk, reggae and alternative Latin genres as a music journalist, including multiple first-to-print profiles on up-and-coming artists. She regularly pens authoritative features on subculture, broke several music industry-focused #MeToo stories and also writes on the business of music.

As a content creator and editor, Jessica develops marketing and internal copy, and also creates band profiles. Jessica has produced multiple true crime documentary episodes for a forthcoming Viceland television series.

When she’s not pursuing the unusual, you can hear Jessica on the radio as Terry Dactyl (KUSF/SFCR and KPOO 89.5 FM) or behind the wheels of steel at a local bar.

There’s more to come, so don’t touch that dial.
