Music Grotto is a leading music entertainment website with content primarily focused on editorial music lists and music information. Looking for some juicy songs, albums, bands and more from the past, present and future? Look no further than our information-focused music & entertainment content.

We launched in 2018 as a skill focused website related to singing, guitar and piano. Later on, we expanded into creating music lists and focused our energy primarily on providing entertaining music content for readers to enjoy. While we still produce some skill focused content, we have shifted the bulk of our focus to providing interesting fact and opinion pieces related to all different aspects of music. Now, we operate as a small team that works directly with passionate music lovers and journalists to provide our readers with detailed music insight.

Our content is created by working with journalists and writers across the globe who have unique experiences creating media and/or music content for different publications. We then review, edit and format content to fit our brand’s opinion and publish the content for readers to enjoy. It’s important for us to ensure that every piece of content provides high-value entertainment and intelligent opinion related to Music Grotto’s editorial processes. Everyone involved with content production at Music Grotto has a unique passion for music, whether directly related to various musical skills or simply a hunger to listen to and form knowledgeable opinion on songs, artists, bands, and more.
