musicOMH is a United Kingdom-based website which publishes independent reviews, features and interviews from across all musical genres including classical, metal, rock and R&B.


MusicOMH was founded and launched by Editor in Chief Michael Hubbard in 1999.[2]

In February 2011 the site's former theatre section was spun off, becoming Exeunt Magazine, as MusicOMH refocused from being a general arts publication to writing exclusively about music.

Main features and coverage

Further illustrating MusicOMH's diversity, the BBC also regularly links to the site's reviews of The Proms, an eight-week run of orchestral classical music concerts.[13][14][15][16]
