Tuscon Songs by

Tucson, the "smallest metropolis in the USA", has emerged in recent years as a vibrant music mecca. The favorable living conditions - eternally shining sun and affordable rents - as well as the perfect work and performance opportunities for musicians have advanced the development. The sampler "Tucson Songs" is entirely dedicated to the music of southern Arizona. The musical spectrum ranges from desert sounds à la Calexico and Giant Sand to Countrybilly, from Morricone-inspired soundscapes to desert chanson, from traditional songwriter pop and folk to experimental indie guitar pop. The Le Pop compilation makers were actively supported on their treasure hunt in the Sonora desert by Joey Burns (Calexico) and local radio journalist and musician J. Daniel Twelker (who is an ophthalmologist by profession). "Tucson Songs" is the portrait of a music city that has never been seen before - a musical melting pot and creative oasis in the middle of the desert.
