What is Exposé?

Exposé started as a quarterly publication that had a modest beginning in 1993 as a supplemental monthly newsletter for John Szpara's syndicated Progressive Rock radio show "Exposure" (which at the time wasn't even on the air yet).

By the second issue in early '94 the radio show was on the air, but Exposé was starting to take on a life of its own, reaching far beyond the confines of Exposure's airwaves. It also became evident that producing it every month was an unrealistic goal. In the years from 1994 to 2011 the page count grew and the frequency decreased.

Enter the new Exposé Online. It is our goal to be the most useful destination on the web for people interested in the kinds of music we cover, full of reviews that are well written by knowledgeable staff. We aim to be a cut above the average music blog, not that there's anything wrong with music blogs. In the ever expanding world of the internet, there's room for all kinds of subject matter and presentation. What we are not is a repository for downloading music. When appropriate, we will provide links to places you can find the music, but we do not host it, and we take no stance on the moral or legal status of various means used to acquire music.

Allan Holdsworth RIP – Surely in the list of artists who have contributed to the sound of modern music, there is a special spot for guitarist Allan Holdsworth. His name is known to virtually every student of the instrument in jazz and rock, and his style has been so widely emulated that it's hardly worth mentioning anymore — we can just assume that every guitarist has Holdsworth as an influence. » Read more
