Haulix Weekly Update #80 – “Loneliness and cheeseburgers are a dangerous mix.”

Hey there, everyone. Welcome to our website. We are happy you found a few moments in your busy schedule to spend browsing our content, and we hope you find something amongst these many articles that aides you in your professional journey. Before we get there however, we might as well share what has been the soundtrack to the last week of our lives. Check it out:

Each and every weekend we like to take a brief break from our regularly scheduled programming to update and reflect on everything happening at Haulix HQ. We are far more than a music blog, as many of you already know, and posts like this give us an opportunity to share more our efforts with all of you.


Our friends at Musicology recently interviewed Founder/CEO Matt Brown about the work we do here at Haulix. Click here to enjoy their article.


As many of you know, the Haulix platform was down temporarily last weekend while our team worked on a few updates. We are happy to report everything worked out fine and normal services resumed within hours. The changes made were far too discuss here, but we felt it was important to let you know everything went well.

We mentioned this last week, but we recently made the decision to completely overhaul the Haulix platform. This effort will take months to complete, but we are confident that we will have something to show for all our hard work before the end of the year. If you have responded to any of our calls for suggestions over the last few months, you too have contributed to the next version of Haulix. We build with clients and their contacts in mind. If you know of some way we can further improve, please do not hesitate to contact us.


After a week spent recovering from SXSW while trying to once again get our editorial efforts back on track, the past seven days pretty much passed us by without as much as a hello. We have been incredibly busy as of late, but we know it’s all for the best because the content we are working on is without a doubt some of the best we have ever concocted. If you missed anything we ran in recent days, please use the links below to catch up before a new week of content sharing begins:

Next week we have an interview with The Spill Canvas going up, as well as a Blogger Spotlight feature on someone who is essentially dominating the realm of satirical music journalism. Until then, stay safe and have a fun weekend.
