Each edition of The Avenue’s annual compilation album creates a snapshot of the year. 2022 was a year that was dizzying – the floodgates of live music were open and everyone seemed to be trying to make up for lost time. It was an embarrassment of riches. Voices 2022 is a reflection of this frantic musical atmosphere.
Recorded at Avenue concerts, monthly August Haven Live broadcasts, studio visits, or during our Mile of Music coverage, the following 24 exclusive tracks create a document of a most unusual year. We’re grateful to the talented and generous artists who live and perform in our area. Their music always makes life better. And that was never more true than during the last year.
We thank all the artists who played Avenue events or visited our studio in 2022. After a couple of years when gathering for live music (or gathering at all) was scarce, their music has become more important than ever. Artist’s websites are included in the liner notes. We hope Voices 2022 inspires you to dig deeper into these artists and support their work.
Thanks again, to Nicolet Bank for making this collection possible with their support. Many performances on Voices 2022 were recorded for our August Haven Live broadcasts. Thanks to August Haven for their on-going support of our local music community. And thanks to our listeners who support The Avenue and make independent radio a reality in our community. Let it play!
