Half-Gig


We're looking for Boise-based musicians—bands, duos, and solo artists—to help us build our newest collection, Half-Gig Audio. It’ll be entirely digital, and we’ll make it available for streaming to listeners in Boise and beyond. You can submit full albums and individual songs, as well as cover art, bios, and other supporting material. We'll launch the collection in January 2019, and we'll continue to add content as we receive it. See boisepubliclibrary.org/halfgig.
