Austin Lamb, Arts & Entertainment Editor

My name is Austin Lamb and I am a sophomore at Oswego High School. This is my first year with 42Fifty and I'm excited to begin writing consistently. I greatly enjoy playing and listening to music, as well as writing. I've always been interested in writing, especially about things that can be critiqued and looked at subjectively. I play the guitar in a band with my friends and primarily listen to metal music but enjoy and appreciate all genres. I hope my knowledge of music and writing talent will pay off for the Arts & Entertainment section this year, and I can't wait to start writing.
