OkSessions just recently launched their public Spotify playlists featuring all Oklahoma music! We feature over 100 different artists and 8 different genres.
Why is this important?
People want to listen to local music. What we’re doing is making that music accessible, bringing the music to the people.
Here’s a link to our Spotify account! Please feel free to follow it and send it to your friends!
We’ve created playlists for every mood, every music preference. What people often forget is how diverse Oklahoma music really is. It’s not all country or rock or indie. There’s something for everyone, and, hopefully, making this music more accessible will show people that the Oklahoma music scene is welcoming to everyone!
That being said, we know that there may be artists we aren’t familiar with. If you listen to one of our playlists and notice that your favorite artists is missing, feel free to send us a message and let us know! We love getting familiar with new local music!
We also want to take a moment to thank Desiree Steeze for helping us out with our Rap/R&B playlist! She’s an expert in the scene, and we’re very thankful for her exposing us to some amazing artists.
Why did we do it?
The answer is simple – we love local music. Also, at one point, we realized that a resource like this didn’t exist until now. We want to make it easy to listen to local music in the comfort of your home or your car and get familiar with the artists. Maybe, then, people will feel even more inspired to go out to shows and support musicians in Oklahoma.
Below are links to our individual playlists to meet your different musical moods.
What can I do to help?
You can help us out by spreading the word! If you listen to a playlist you love, share it with a friend! If you work at a coffee shop in Oklahoma, we would love for you to play our “Coffee and Chill” playlist in your shop and tell people that you support local music. If you work at a bar or book store, or anywhere where you can play some tunes, feel free to blast those playlists around town! Let people know that our music scene is growing, and we have some amazing artists in Oklahoma.
You can also help out by showing the artist your support. If you hear a song you love, give that artist some love and show up to their next show! Odds are, they’re playing a gig locally, and, now that you’re familiar with the artist, you might enjoy it even more!
Feel free to let us know what you think of the new playlists!
Thanks for being amazing and supporting local music. We need more people like you.
