A FEW NEW ONES
Artists test the risky musical landscape with new work and plans for upcoming tours
The musical landscape of recording, issuing new music, performing and touring is mutable and uncertain. While the pandemic is less of a concern – maybe – other factors like inflation, jacked up prices for everything from bus rentals to fencing for outdoor venues are changing the financial equations.
Nonetheless, artists are testing the waters with just announced tours and recently released or upcoming albums. Today’s post features a few of the bold and brave that may be passing through your region in the next few months. Let’s support them and the many others out there when and where we can.
