Meet the (Narrow) Writers
As Narrow continues in its 4th year of publication, we have been fortunate to have some amazing writers. The three we are featuring on the cover, and here on this page, have been with us the longest of all current regular writers. Their dedication to Narrow and the local music scenes is unsurpassed, and we are all fortunate we get to read their work every month.

Victoria, or Tori as she is sometimes known, is our senior most writer. Joining Narrow in May of 2015, Tori has written more than 25 features, and her unique perspectives and writing techniques often make her contributions the most talked about and quoted in the magazine. When she’s not planning on her “bucket list” item of starting a cult or checking out indie movie soundtracks, she might be seen doing some killer makeup artist work, or walking on the Saint Augustine Fashion Week runways. Tori has covered some of the most popular Saint Augustine musical acts like Chillula, Bob Patterson, Observatory, Love Chunk, Mike Cook, Brent Byrd, The Cosmic Groove, and a recent cover story featuring Salt and Pine.
Ariel Thomas (pictured, far left)
Ariel wrote her first Narrow article back in October of 2015, and has written more than 15 feature articles. She is a 2017 graduate of Flagler College, majoring in Journalism and Documentary Production. She once did a project on Narrow’s Editor in chief for one of her classes. Ariel’s an avid runner and loves live music, which shows in her writing. Over the years, several of her stories ended up being cover stories including ones on Walt Kulwicki, Kim Brown, and last month’s cover story on Sam Pacetti. She has also covered local favorite Ramona, and interviewed the late guitar legend Larry Coryell, known as the “Godfather of Fusion,” for a Narrow article.

Meghan joined the Narrow writing team in July of 2017, but has already pumped out ten features, including a recent cover story on Bernie Boehm, a member of reggae band Brothers Within. A current Flagler College student majoring in Journalism, she labels herself a “professional karaoke singer” (noting that auto-tune might still allow for a singing career), though we already know she is quite accomplished on the keyboards for real so stay tuned! Meghan also interviewed Glen Phillips of Toad the Wet Sprocket fame for a Narrow article last month, and has covered other local bands for Narrow including Salt Driven Ride, Chemtrails, Divebar, and solo female artist Mallory Moyer.
