The guy who originally hatched the idea of The Northbound. Building it from the ground up, his vision is to develop a platform for people to experience new music, and to help lesser-known artists make a name for themselves. He plays guitar in West Virginia-based band What’s Missing. You can usually find him at a gig, or stuck behind his computer doing work.
Ryan Glaspell has a passion for contributing to music in any way, shape or form he can. He graduated from West Virginia University with a degree in print journalism, and has focused many of his endeavors on cultivating a more inclusive and informed music scene. He aims to continue to do that with The Northbound as people discover their favorite artists they’ve never heard of. He sings and plays guitar in Forever Strong, a punk rock band based in West Virginia.
