About the author:
Gary Wien has been covering New Jersey's music scene in print and online since 2001. Are You Listening? is the second time he's focused on New Jersey music for a book. In 2003, he released Beyond The Palace, the first comprehensive look at the Asbury Park rock and rock scene from the sixties to 2003. To help promote the book he created AsburyMusic.com, a website that would eventually serve as the community's online home.
In 2004, he launched Upstage Magazine, a print publication dedicated to covering the arts throughout New Jersey. The following year, he launched an online radio station supporting indie and national artists at www.ThePenguinRocks.com.
Upstage Magazine was a critical success, but never achieved the financial goals Gary had set for it. An ill-fated partnership led to the magazine's premature demise. Gary moved on to a job with a national Association based in Princeton where he handles their public relations and produces a bimonthly magazine.
During the decade, he earned three straight Asbury Music Awards for Top Music Journalist. He also won awards for his website, online radio station, and print magazine.
He lives in Belmar, NJ with his wife Dr. Sherry Wien, whom he met while attending Lynchburg College in VA.
