Put Your Ear to the Ground in Memphis With A Free Download
"We're always looking for ways to promote Memphis and its music scene," said Memphis Flyer's Music Editor Chris Herrington, who curated the compilation. "And the Ear to the Ground series, with its great track record in other cities, seemed like a terrific opportunity to do just that."
"Memphis is so storied and steeped in music history — Stax Records, Sun Records, Beale Street, Graceland — that it can be easy to forget that it's still birthing artists and has a strong music scene today," said Tom Monday, Director of Partner Relations at LimeWire Store.
"Some of the current Memphis artists we discovered seem to draw directly from the city's musical legacy — folks like the incredible Grace Askew. But then others like Teflon Don make you realize just how thoroughly modern some of the sounds are. We hope the Ear to the Ground platform helps all the artists gathered here reach more people; they deserve to be heard."
