Wyoming musicians needed for the 2019 Summer Road Trip Playlist

WYOMING — Can you pick it, strum it, or sing it? Wyoming Arts Council is seeking music from Wyoming musicians for the 2019 Summer Road Trip Playlist. Wyoming is famous for its beautiful eye-grabbing landscape, and the musical talent of the Cowboy State provides the perfect soundtrack for all of those summer adventures.

The Summer Road Trip Playlist is an annual release hosted on Spotify and promoted at high tourism areas across the state like various state parks, historic sites and trails, visitor centers, museums, and festivals. In addition to the promotion of the playlist, artists receive featured pieces on their music through Wyoming Arts Council media channels.

This is a statewide call open to independent musicians of all genres. To apply for consideration, please complete the interest form online and create or update a profile on the Wyoming Arts Council’s Artist Directory by May 19.

The interest form is short, requiring some general information about the music and links to up to two songs already listed on Spotify to submit for consideration. There is no limit to the number of songs selected for the playlist.

Songs will be juried by Eric Gilbert, Director of Treefort Music Fest in Boise, Idaho based on the merit of the song and the quality of the recording. The playlist will then be curated to form a cohesive listening experience.

The Summer Road Trip Playlist is an annual part of the Arts Council’s Wyoming Independent Music Initiative (WIMI), working to build a robust music scene in Wyoming.

For additional information, please email Taylor Craig, or call 307-777-7473.
