Rock At Night was launched in October 2014 as the brainchild of Chyrisse Tabone, who longed to pursue her dream of being a rock journalist and photographer.  She was on the road at age 16 when she started college as a journalism major (think “Almost Famous”), working in the dark room and pursuing new bands, until her mighty parents stepped in saying, “You need to pursue something that will pay the bills like engineering and science!” Thus, journalism and professional photography became a sideline and not a profession.

After a long career in the environmental science field (and the loss of fellow geologists to cancer), she realized we only have one life to live and her motto became “No Regrets!”  After gathering up fellow friends and colleagues around the world, many “professionals” that also lead double lives as creatives, Rock At Night was born. All of the Rock At Night team are composed of journalists and photographers that are dedicated to bringing music news, album reviews, and interviews to the forefront, through text and audio podcast interviews in their iTunes and Google Podcast channels. Covering globally, but concentrated in the United States, United Kingdom, and Europe, Rock At Night is dedicated to professional journalism and photography, publishing news daily, in its website and many social media formats.

Rock At Night “went back to the future” in 2020 by initiation of its print magazine. Published quarterly, the magazine features a theme, unique artwork, and columns unlike any magazine published in the past.  We make strides to differentiate ourselves from the rest.
