Mary Varvaris, Journalist

Mary Varvaris

I'm a Staff Writer for The Music and Kill Your Stereo based in Melbourne.

You can find me listening to anything from mewithoutYou, Radiohead, Northlane, Jaguar Jonze, Julia Jacklin or Paramore at any time. Outside of The Music and Kill Your Stereo, my journalism has been featured in The Age, Australian Guitar Magazine, Blunt Magazine, Chorus.fm (previously known as AbsolutePunk.net), my Substack newsletter, and more. You can view my work on my Linktree.

I'm a lifelong metalhead and all-around music lover, which stems from my childhood, where I was raised in a family of talented musos and fans of great songs. I wouldn't be where I am today without them.

When I'm not writing, I'm hanging out with my dog, catching a gig somewhere in Melbourne, or just watching tv.
