Anthony Mostrom is a journalist whose articles have appeared in the Los Angeles Timesthe L.A. Review of Books/LARBMalibu Magazine, and the groundbreaking music history site,

Tony’s writing has encompassed book reviews and essays, articles on music and culture, and most notably his deep investigations into true crime, including the notorious unsolved Black Dahlia murder (a documentary is currently in the works with filmmaker Stuart Swezey).

In June of 2024, Mostrom was featured in Rachel Maddow’s groundbreaking MSNBC podcast Ultra 2, discussing the bizarre saga of the American neo-Fascist theoretician Francis Parker Yockey, and his impact on postwar world politics.

Parallel to Tony’s writing, he has exhibited drawings at Roberts & Tilton Gallery in Los Angeles and at The Delta Blues Museum in Clarksdale, Mississippi:, “Anthony Mostrom: Paramount Portraits – Drawings from the Rise & Fall of Paramount Records, vol. 1 & 2.”

His career as a visual artist reached a peak when he collaborated with Jack White (The White Stripes) and Dean Blackwood, creating over 300 pen & ink portraits of jazz musicians for a massive box-set project: the 2-volume opus, “The Rise & Fall of Paramount Records.” Both volumes won the Grammy award for ‘Best Historical Box Set.’

Alongside his Black Dahlia documentary project, Mostrom is currently working on a book about true crimes of the 1920s.

Tony lives with his partner Lara in nostalgic and pastoral Pasadena, CA.
