Mississippi Music of 2016 (So Far)

Over the years, I've done plenty of interviews with local Jackson acts and nationally known recording artists, and I've been surprised at how many of the same topics of conversation come up for both.

One of the most common is the concept of "home base," the location where bands or solo artists choose to record music, tour out of and advocate on behalf of. Naturally, some feel the need to relocate to the handful of "cities where music gets made," including Nashville, Los Angeles and New York City. However, as any of Mississippi's myriad entertainers will tell you, there's no shortage of great music getting made right here.

For proof, I submit this whopping list of new albums, EPs, mixtapes and singles that Mississippi-based artists have released in 2016 so far.
