Tracks Music Library aims to feature local music from a range of genres including rock, bluegrass, hip hop, electronic, jazz, and world music. The collection hopes to represent the sounds of the Triangle area. “By extending the submission period, artists and bands just discovering this opportunity can potentially be a part of the collection. We’re seeking musicians of all of kinds to participate,” says Molly Luby, Tracks Project Manager. The open call launched this January and recently broadened the artist guidelines, extending the opportunity to those based in the Raleigh area.
Some important details for local musicians and bands interested in submitting include:
Musicians should be based in the Triangle area.
Musicians must hold the rights to the music they submit.
Music must have been produced in the last five years.
Musicians can submit up to three songs for consideration and will need a minimum of five songs if selected.
The deadline to submit music has been extended to Friday, Feb. 14.
Selected musicians will receive a $200 honorarium for sharing their music.
