Meet the Writer: Charlotte Kohlberg

As an aspiring writer with an intense passion for music, Charlotte Kohlberg’s journey into music journalism was a perfect fit. Born in Palo Alto, California, Kohlberg’s love of music started with the pop punk princesses of the early 2000s — P!nk and Avril Lavigne. After majoring in art history at NYU, she took an interest in music marketing and A&R work. But a chance meeting with a music journalist in the Bay Area led her on the path to music journalism.
