Editor-In-Chief Donte Montgomery



Born in Chicago, IL in 1990 and moved to Lexington, KY in 2003. I always had an interest in writing when I was in school and graduated the Kentucky Governor's School for the Arts program in 2007. Having a strong interest in music I picked up playing drums when I was 18 and joined my first band at age 22. My passion for music only grew while being involved with my local music scene and realized there was so much talent in my city that went unnoticed. That's when the idea came to me to combine my skill for writing with my passion for music and started the Haystack blog with a Tumblr page in January of 2016. Now with an original website I cover and review music from artists major, indie, and even local level if it's good. I enjoy all styles of rock and metal and no style will go uncovered on this site.
