Rich Ward 11 is louder than was founded by editor Rich Ward.

He launched the 11 is louder than 10 brand as a humble Tumblr blog way back in 2010 as a way of combining two of his main passions in life, writing and music, and over the intervening period it has developed into the music news hub you see today.

Initially focusing on up-and-coming bands in the London area, the site has since gained traction worldwide and now features reviews and interviews with bands making a splash in North America, Europe and Australia.

Having been a guitarist for more than 18 years and experienced playing in a variety of venues across the south of the UK in bands such as Tainted Grace, his appreciation of all the trials and tribulations that musicians go through allows him to form a unique connection with artists he meets.

When he’s not blogging about music, Rich is the creative copywriting and social media half of digital duo Two Can Content.


Whether you’re an artist looking to feature on the site, a PR agency or advertiser looking to collaborate, an editor seeking a freelance music writer or a music journalist on the lookout for opportunities, please get in touch with Rich via email.
