Hearty Magazine: groove is in the hearty

Founder Hana May’s formula is simple: sidestep the scenesterism, derivative gossip and self-conscious blog irony. Instead, focus on innovative features about up-and-coming artists like graphic designer Benny Gold, musician Florence Welch and jewellery genius Bijules. As the New York mag with a finger firmly planted on the pulse of emerging everything blows out its first candle, we salute its remote team of fly lady reporters for their fashion, music and culture savvy.
