Allyson Song River Jaynes has been a photographer and journalist since the 80s, having worked at notable entertainment publications as well as her years spent working as an insider in political, cultural and social affairs. It was about three years ago when her oldest brother, a musician, passed away that she approached Carol Pacey about the idea of creating a show about... what else? Fiercely independent rock'n'roll music. Now carrying her passion for music well into the 21st century, she interviews and photographs musicians and entertainers as a freelance-minded individual for a variety of magazines. Starting her own local home-grown publicity company under the name of CowGirlZen Entertainment, she continues to work with serious emerging bands with their social media, websites, stage presence as well as connections with media and their fans.
