One of the great perks of working for Scene this year is extremely talented musicians have started to drop by our office to play acoustically for us. It's great, seriously. We call these three or four-song sets "Scene Sessions" and they showcase the crazy talent of the Cleveland music scene.
As 2013 wraps up, we thought we'd highlight some of the best tracks from the Scene Sessions artists that have stopped by this year and share them with you, our loyal readers, to stream or download as MP3s. So press play on the Scene Sessions - Volume 1 playlist as you're killing time at work, or download them for the too-long drive to your parents' house for Christmas.
To listen to each of the 13 tracks uninterrupted, press play on the Soundcloud playlist. To play individually, just scroll down a little further. To download a song, click on the file name to view it on soundcloud.com and then click the icon that looks like a downward facing arrow. And, of courses, make sure you check out the websites and social media accounts of all the local musicians you enjoy from here.
If you know a musician that would be a good fit for Scene Sessions in 2014, contact our music editor, Jeff Niesel, at email@example.com.
