Headlights and White Lines was formed in 2016 as an independent creative collective aimed at supporting independent bands with things like professional quality video, artwork, and help in developing their music marketing strategy. 

Behind the scenes we're still working on some practical projects, including live shows like the Off The Record Independent Music Festival. However, in November 2018 we decided to switch our focus and develop the site into a magazine aimed at promoting the independent music and arts scenes. We update when we can and email when we remember. We hope you check back regularly and find something cool, new, different, and beautiful every time.

Thanks for your support - we hope you enjoy the new look Headlights and White Lines zine!
