We have decided after much speculation to discontinue the release of our annual magazine. We will continue to release music both in stores and online from our signed artists. Artists, musicians and writers can continue to submit their works to us through our website, www.sgtsparrow.com.
Our blog will continue to function as it has. It will now have much more in depth material and more frequent posts as all of the work that went into the magazine will now go into the blog. Look forward to many new artists and interviews this year! For more information visit our website!
