Tony Todorova is a writer for SMACK who’s love for music knows no bounds and who’s taste follows no pattern. From La Bouche to Shania Twain to Depeche Mode to Bessie Smith, she’s dabbled in everything. Music and it’s reciprocal connection to culture is what most interests her. Her background in neuroscience and medical humanities deeply inform how she interprets music. Still, she is a staunch advocate of experiencing music first, analyzing later.
