Web-based publications may be the norm today, but when NewMusicBox went live on May 1, 1999, it was a relative rarity. It is one example of longevity for a form of music journal in a virtual world where well-intended publications can easily come and go, be left unattended, or simply become obsolete.
Begun under the auspices of what was then the non-profit American Music Center, and now NewMusic USA, it remains one of the time-tested survivors of changes that have taken place in journalism and media over the last two decades, and remains an important public voice for new American music.
