Local Artist Spotify Playlist #5

Just a reminder from my most recent post – the next Weekly Music Lineup will be on September 16. While I take a step back to recharge the “batteries”, I’ve scheduled a couple posts to keep in touch. The first is this long overdue Local Artist Spotify Playlist. While I originally intended to post one each month, I have tried to focus more on new or recently released music. The playlists will be a little less frequent but, hopefully, the content will be fresh and new.

If you have new music coming out soon or have released anything in the past few months, let me know and I will be happy to include you on the next playlist. I’m looking for artists in our coverage area – Lehigh Valley, Poconos, Bucks, Berks, Carbon and Montgomery Counties. To be included, simply send your Spotify links to lvvoicesofthevalley@gmail.com, use the “contact us” form on the website or message me at https://www.facebook.com/lvvoicesofthevalley.

You can listen to the latest playlist at the link below.

Weekly Music Lineup – 8/26/21

*****EDITOR’S NOTE***** Every now and then, we all need a little vacation. For me, it’s been way too long. I will be taking a step back for a couple weeks but, the “Weekly Music Lineup” will return on 9/16/21. In the meantime, I have written and scheduled a couple articles – including a new Spotify playlist – and I will do my best to make some time to share them in the groups I normally share in. Please keep an eye out for them and continue to support local live music and the venues that bring it to us every week.

If you would like to see your events advertised here every week, simply let me know your schedule by Wednesday evening. Whether your event is live and in person or on-line, you can promote it here.
