Underground Music Collective

Underground Music Collective Your songs. Your stories. Music reviews, interviews, features, and much more. #GoUnderground with us! Since January 2016, Underground Music Collective has featured some of music’s best and brightest independent acts.

We have welcomed and reviewed thousands of submissions, of all genres. We've covered hundreds of performances, and continue to strive to build a stronger community around the art being created by independent musicians everywhere, every day. We got our start in Bethlehem, PA, albeit under a different name: Lehigh Valley Underground. The fundamental mission was the same, of course; we were a publication doing everything we could to highlight independent music, especially in eastern Pennsylvania and western New Jersey. In our time in the Keystone State, our award-winning platform highlighted the region’s most noteworthy musicians and festivals through multimedia channels including web, social media, and internet radio. In addition, we hosted and/or sponsored a number of popular events in the region, most notably including the Lehigh Valley Underground First Friday Concert Series, in partnership with Bethlehem’s SouthSide Arts District. After nearly three years, and after exploring the industry’s greater landscape through conferences and other educational opportunities, we began to look beyond the cozy confines of home. We thought, “Hey, there’s a boatload of talent here and everywhere else. What if we became a resource to connect all of these people to each other and the music industry?” So, we ventured out to do that in November 2018, transforming into Underground Music Collective and re-locating our base content operations into the literal heart of the music industry: Nashville. That’s where we’ve been ever since. At the heart of it all, though, is that same a love of music discovery that fuels us to feature new artists, releases, and performances every single day. In addition, we create insightful multimedia content featuring people who have experienced the ups and downs of living a creative life, including musicians, producers, content creators, and more! Thanks for joining us on this ride! Stick around a while to #GoUnderground and #GoBeyond!

If you're a music industry person -- or, if you want to be -- you need to listen to every word of this. So many good nuggets about thinking of your music as a business! #GoUnderground #KTMP

In this 'HOME School' panel discussion, 3 HOME Members who are local entertainment attorneys will discuss some of the most common pitfalls they see when helping the music community navigate their legal hurdles:

✹ Artist & Band Names (Trademarks)

✹ Clearance (sometimes holding up record deals or licensing agreements... or even nullifying them)

✹ Splits and Reconciliation (accounting errors of collaborators and companies)

✹ Protecting IP (especially now that there is so much remote work)

✹ Force Majeure (Covid has made this standard clause so much more important)

Join HOME and special guest panelists Colin Maher, Ryan Noormohamed, and Zach Gainous as we share information that will help you prepare your music business for the best possible future outcomes.

Here’s to the UnderDogs!

We are creatives, and we are storytellers. We know that there is much more to music than the finished product. Behind each chord and lyric are real-life events, lived by those who have bravely overcome life’s challenges to forge their path toward artistic fulfillment.

Here at Underground Music Collective, we represent a diverse musical world full of varying sounds and perspectives, as told through the lens of these courageous individuals. We strive to communicate truths about our shared human experience, and to tell stories of perseverance on our pages that inspire you to overcome.

#GoUnderground and uncover what lies beneath the surface. Dig in!
