According to KRCC's Vicky Gregor, Southern Colorado's music scene has "exploded" in recent years. In recent years artists from Colorado Springs, Pueblo and beyond have found bigger audiences at venues like The Black Sheep and Lulu's Downstairs. They've also found new ways to release music via independent labels like Blank Tape Records.
