In 2013, The Boston Phoenix went to print for the last time. The go-to-publication for so many music lovers was shutdown, and Boston lost an icon.
One month later, Redefined began building a new platform and brand for Boston music. Teaming up with former Boston Phoenix Music Editor, Michael Marotta, Redefined transformed a blogspot into Vanyaland.com — a music website designed for the Boston music community and beyond.
Since it’s launch in May 2013, Vanyaland has become the most read music website in New England. Featured in Vice, The Guardian, SPIN, Rolling Stone, NME and Pitchfork and winner of “Best Music Blog” in 2013 and 2015 (Boston Music Awards).
