Cluttered garages, backyards, sweaty basements, poorly lit bars: a few of the unexpected places I’ve heard some of my favorite music, all from around the Albany area. You never have to stray too far to discover some true gems, I’m constantly amazed by the talent I’ve found right in my backyard. From pop punk to hip hop, alternative to funk, Albany has such a diverse community of artists that I truly admire.
The local music scene fills me with immense pride and excitement, so much so that I will soon begin introducing to you five of my favorite local artists to spice up your winter playlists.
Stay tuned to The Velvet Drifters to find out which young Albany band I had the privilege to sit down with for the first installment of this exciting series!
