The RVA Videos You Missed in 2017: ROCK/INDIE/FOLK

by | Jan 2, 2018 | ROCK / INDIE

It’s been a great year in local music. The sound coming from our local scene has a cohesive quality that’s pushing everything forward.  In looking through all these noteworthy videos coming out of Richmond, you get a sense that our town is making itself known all over with our own energy and sound.

It has taken awhile to get to this point, but any scene needs a few things to help it grow. We needed the venues. Now, with places like The National, The Broadberry, The Camel, Strange Matter, and Cary Street Cafe leading the way, musicians have quality places to play. We needed top level production teams making records, creative people adding the visuals, and record labels willing to take risks to bring out the best in our talent. And of course, we needed an audience which has been growing in part because we have the best breweries on the East Coast, a top shelf art scene, and so many awesome restaurants you probably couldn’t name them all. Put it all together, and you have a recipe for something special. If you haven’t already been paying attention to what’s under your nose, take a minute to check out this sampling of music videos you probably missed in 2017.
