Wyoming musicians have an opportunity to contribute to the 2019 Summer Road Trip Playlist, a soundtrack for summer adventures in the Cowboy State.hh
The Wyoming Arts Council created the first playlist for the summer of 2017. Although the council didn’t release a 2018 playlist, Taylor Craig, creative arts specialist for their Wyoming Independent Music Initiative (WIMI) said they have every intention of making it an annual release from now on.
The Summer Road Trip Playlist is hosted on Spotify and promoted at high tourism areas across the state, such as at state parks, historic sites and trails, Wyoming visitor centers, museums, and festivals. In addition to the promotion of the playlist, artists will receive featuredcoverage of their music through Wyoming Arts Council media channels.
The opportunity is open statewide to independent musicians of all genres. To apply for consideration, 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 selected 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 Summer Road Trip Playlist is a part of the Arts Council’s Wyoming Independent Music Initiative (WIMI), working to build a robust music scene in Wyoming.
