Elodie A. Roy has a doctorate from the International Centre for Music Studies (ICMuS, Newcastle). Her work examines the material cultures of music in the twentieth-century and the relationship between cultural objects and memory in the wake of digitisation, with a focus on British independent record labels.
She has published in the field of popular music and French literature (with a book chapter in Le Cœur dans tous ses Etats – Essais sur la Littérature et l’Art français, Peter Lang, 2013). Her forthcoming publications include a book chapter on Sarah Records in LitPop – Literature and Pop Music (Ashgate, forthcoming 2014), and an article on British contemporary record labels and nostalgia (Volume! The French Journal of Popular Music Studies, forthcoming 2014).
Her writings have also appeared in the French music paper Magic and the literary magazine La Femelle du Requin. She is the founder of a number of fanzines, including Applejack, and runs a small cd and tape label, EAR/Camera Shy records.
