North Carolina: Chapel Hill Public Library Announces New Digital Music Streaming Service
From Indy Week:
A new Chapel Hill initiative is taking a step to create a more intimate streaming experience—one that gives up-and-coming North Carolina musicians more exposure—by creating a platform just for local music. Tracks, a collaboration between the Chapel Hill Public Library and Chapel Hill Community Arts & Culture, is slated to launch later this spring.
Artists and albums will be curated by a handful of Chapel Hill music experts, including Kevin “Kaze” Thomas, WXYC station manager Elinor Walker, UNC Southern Folklife Collection curator Steve Weiss, and former Crook’s Corner owner Bill Smith. Tracks will pay to license the selected music.
