We’ve been writing this week about our favorite music that artists from Madison released in 2017. We put out our top 20 Madison records of 2017 list and we’ve got a couple other things detailing more releases that made a mark in the local music community this year.

As always, it’s been a varied year for Madison music, with an ever-changing mix of genres, new talents coming out of the woodwork, and established local artists coming through again. The music we liked in Madison this year tended to have a habit of defying or just disregarding genre barriers, and of course it went beyond recorded output. Tone Madison‘s Scott Gordon, Emili Earhart, and Grant Phipps sat down to discuss our year-end music coverage.

At a time when Madison is going through a lot of change, we want Tone Madison to be something you can count on. You can rely on us to spotlight the artists, musicians, and ideas that make up the fabric of our city. You can rely on us to challenge the status quo with inventive, adversarial journalism, including our coverage of abortion rights, housing, and labor. 

 

But here's the thing: reader support is crucial our survival. We'll keep writing the articles you love (or love to hate) for as long as we can—but we need your help to keep our small, independent publication going.
