Hello and welcome to Pastel Zine. I’m Andrea Quinlan. I’m a Christchurch, New Zealand based poet, playwright, performer and community theatre member, amongst other things. Music is one of my big passions in life and this is a space where I interview independent musicians and blog about music I love. My favourite artists include X-Ray Spex, Bow Wow Wow, Bikini Kill, Skinny Girl Diet, Kali Uchis, Tyler, the Creator, Kitty, Aldous Harding, Cherry Glazerr, Charli XCX, Marina and the Diamonds and Joanna Newsom. I have an occasional podcast called Cyber Fairytales - where I play songs I love and ramble about various things. You can visit my author website and blog here.
