John Doran

Finalist in 2014 for Arts Journalism

John is perhaps best known for The Quietus, an online music magazine which he founded and now runs on a daily basis.

Branching out from the online magazine Doran has also set up the Quietus record label promoting the music of marginalised acts and an independent publishing company featuring the writing of Quietus employees and staff. His knowledge within the music field is often called upon and he is a regular panellist at music conferences.
