This blog is run, authored, and maintained by myself (Billy). It is my intent to write positive and affirming reviews that encourage my readers to purchase music and attend live shows from the artists that I feature. “I don’t listen to bad music, neither should you.”
As a young lad he grew up with two options for musical creativity. On all road trips his parents allowed their five children to choose between contemporary Christian music (in the late 80’s and early 90’s) and a little group known as The Beatles. It wasn’t until high school and university that he first began to explore all the music that the world had to offer.
It was at university that this blog was first unofficially formed. Growing ever more tired with burning countless mix albums for his friends he set out to find a more economical way to distribute his love of quality music. Hence The World Forgot (or more simply TWF) was born. It began slowly in August of 2006 as he wrote about individual songs and the occasional compilation album would be thrown together. Eventually TWF picked up a little steam and became an award winning music blog with thousands of daily visitors.
Recently his life has taken a more serious (he got old and started a career) and as such TWF has once again become a place of only occasional musings and the random mix or album review. Fear not, however, there exists no impetus to close the doors of TWF in the near future no matter how demanding life shall become.
As always, enjoy the music.
Want to support TWF?
I have been asked recently about how you can support The World Forgot. This is actually very simple and rings true on almost all music blogs. First, disable your adblocker for this site. Secondly, follow posted links to purchase music from artists featured on this and other blogs. This not only delivers resources directly to the artists, but also helps pay for the countless hours I have spent writing on TWF.
