Sean Nelson has worked at The Stranger on and off since 1996. He is currently Arts & Music Editor. His past job titles included: Assistant Editor, Associate Editor, Film Editor, Copy Editor, Web Editor, Slog Editor, and Associate Editor Emeritus. He has contributed extensively to every section of the paper. His writing, if you can call it that, has also appeared in/on Pitchfork, The Los Angeles Times, MTV.com, The Talkhouse, Entertainment Weekly, MSN, Alternative Press, The Seattle Times, Seattle Weekly, The Portland Mercury, DIW, and Heeb Magazine. His book about Joni Mitchell’s Court and Spark was published by Continuum Books, as part of the 33&1/3 series. He also had two essays anthologized in Da Capo Press’s Best Music Writing series.
Regrettably, Nelson is also a musician. He has recorded and performed with Harvey Danger, Death Cab for Cutie, The Decemberists, Robyn Hitchcock, the Minus 5, The Long Winters, and many others. Nelson also works on independent movies, taught a songwriting class for UW extension, and has been a host of KEXP's show Audioasis for more than 10 years.
