Civic Lubbock, Inc. announces the Call for Entries for Lubbock Music NOW 2017 to run April 1, 2017 through April 30, 2017. Music artists in a 100-mile radius of Lubbock who have played gigs in the city in the last year are invited to help create an album for the year in music. Musicians submit tracks to be narrowed down and selected by current and former members of the Texas branch of The Recording Academy (Texas Grammy Board). Information to enter can be found on the Civic Lubbock website: civiclubbock.com/lubbockmusic
Lubbock Music NOW was organized by Civic Lubbock, Inc. in 2016 to honor and recognize musicians living in the Lubbock area “working the circuit,” and to give visitors a picture of what is produced on the local music scene. The project compiles an album each year made up entirely of locally produced music. Winning entries receive a $200 prize and inclusion on the Lubbock Music NOW 2017 album on iTunes, Amazon and CD Baby. Last year’s album is available on those sites and in all United, Market Street and Amigos stores in Lubbock as well as the Buddy Holly Center, Ralph’s Records and The Matador.
