About Chris Robley

Best frenemy of mocha milkshakes

The LA Times, Boston Globe, San Francisco Examiner, and others have said nice things about my music.

NPR says: “Dark, romantic strains take flight. This gothic, orchestral indie-pop is sure to leave heads spinning with its unique and haunting sound.”

Wait—music? I thought this was a site for writers!

Well, I’ve also written poems that have been published (or are forthcoming) in POETRY, Prairie Schooner, Beloit Poetry Journal, The Cincinnati Review, Poetry Northwest, RHINO, Magma Poetry, and more. In 2013, I won Boulevard’s Poetry Prize for Emerging Writers. In 2014, I received a Maine Literary Award in the category of “Short Works Poetry.”

I also edit YRTEOP.COM (“POETRY” spelled backwards)—home to poet interviews, poetry news, and 1-Minute Poem Reports.

As marketing coordinator for CD Baby and BookBaby (distributors of independent music and books) I also manage/edit the DIY Musician Blog which sees over 100k unique visits per month, as well as this very BookBaby Blog.
