The Soundcheck is Tiana Speter: a music livin’, review givin’ girl from Queensland (currently in Sydney) with an ear for talent and a nose for new tunes.


While generally leaning to the heavier realms, Tiana is an eclectic musical sponge with tastes ranging from Meshuggah to Mozart, Ray Charles to Run The Jewels – plus everything in between.

Racking up over 800 reviews and interviews since The Soundcheck's inception in 2017 with the likes of Opeth, Sepultura, The Butterfly Effect, Frenzal Rhomb, Caligula's Horse and more - whether you’re looking to discover new tunes, peek behind the scenes or just generally read about music shenanigans: this is the place.
