The Music Meetup: Black Lives Matter

This week I take a break from The Music Meetup’s regular program of interviewing a musician & playing their music. Today, the episode is focusing on making Black/biracial artists/musicians’ voice’s louder.

So here is a playlist highlighting all the bands with Black/biracial musicians as core members that I’ve had the pleasure of featuring on the show before. Make sure to go back and listen to all the interviews with these musicians as well as follow them on social media and buy their music & merch. Let’s keep fighting the good fight against oppression and inequality while also supporting black artists who have and will forever shape the music industry. Click here to stream and/or download the entire playlist. 

I understand that I will never understand how you feel, but I stand with you. As a podcast host/someone in a position to spread awareness, I vow to feature more Black musician fronted bands. #BLM
