Substream Music Press magazine, founded by Marc Young of Erlanger, KY in 2006, began as a quarterly, full-color music magazine. Young released issue #1 by himself featuring the band Halifax. Shortly after the release of issue #1, Young partnered with Jason McMahon of Delaware, OH forming Kneelo Entertainment LLC, dba Substream Music Press.[1]

The magazine was nationally distributed exclusively through the retail chain, [Hot Topic]. In 2009, McMahon bought Young's ownership of the company and is the current owner and publisher of the magazine. McMahon landed new distribution through national magazine distributor Ingram Periodicals for placement in Barnes & Noble, FYE, Hastings Entertainment and Books-A-Million retails stores throughout the US.[2] Kneelo Entertainment LLC has since been dissolved and the magazine is now operating as Substream Magazine. The magazine is currently printed bi-monthly and is distributed in the United States. In 2017, the magazine relocated to Cleveland, Ohio.


The magazine bills itself as "a bi-monthly music and lifestyle magazine that focuses on discovering and sharing the best in new music, fashion and entertainment."[3]
