JACKSON, Wyo. — The bustle of pre-COVID music releases in the spring was ramping up ahead of South by Southwest and Treefort Music Festival. Then the industry turned to sludge. With no touring and dismal opportunities to perform, many artists with albums and singles already in the bag tussled with whether to release them. The ones that chose to move forward left historical snapshots of their sound in a turbulent time.
Music publications have released their top albums of the year and radio stations are collecting their most spun songs of the year. Here’s a nod to notable artists in Teton County and across Wyoming that released music in 2020. Check out the Spotify playlist below—Buckrail Regional Music Radar, Vol. 1: Releases of 2020—featuring locals Abby Webster, Canyon Kids, Lonesome Gold, Coyote Queen, Inland Isle, Carly King, Freda Felcher, and Benyaro with Chaley Rose. Three other local groups—Spghetti, Aaron Davis & the Mystery Machine, and Strumbucket—also released new songs to Soundcloud and Bandcamp. Other Wyoming songwriters on the Spotify playlist include Sarah Sample, J Shogren Shanghai’d, Bob Lefevre & the Already Gone, Jason Tyler Burton, Skip Ewing, Ian Munsick, and The Two Tracks.
