hi there.

I’m Marissa Lorusso: a writer, editor and music journalist. I’m good at keeping big projects on track and I like to tell stories about the places where culture, power and art intersect.

I’m currently an associate editor on NPR’s Music and Events teams, focusing mainly on our Turning the Tables series and the Tiny Desk Contest. I also make ourĀ weekly newsletter, write about music I love and sometimes talk on podcasts.

I’m also a songwriter under the name Keeper.

Thanks for stopping by.
