Lubbock Music NOW: It’s the frame for a picture of life in the Hub City. It’s the artists grinding it out night after night providing a soundtrack for our evenings out. It’s the songs being written now that may endure for years to come.
The Project: Compile an album every year made up entirely of locally-produced music. Submitted tracks will be narrowed down and final selections made by current and former members of the Texas branch of The Recording Academy (Texas Grammy Board).
The Purpose: To honor and recognize musicians living in the Lubbock area “working the circuit,” and to give visitors a picture of what the local scene is producing. It’s a time capsule of music.
