SXSWfm’s programming is made up entirely of former and future official SXSW Showcasing Artists, representing a wide variety of genres, as well as countries from around the world. New album releases are added to our library weekly. We take pride in the artists selected each year to play the SXSW Music Festival, and want to continue to share their work with you.
Shelby Magness has returned with her specialty SXSWfm show Code Red, a weekly selection of her current musical obsessions. Last week’s show included music by SXSW 2017 Showcasing Artists Lewis Watson and Kevin Krauter, as well as singer-songwriter Norah Jones, who first performed at the music festival in 2002.
In case you missed it, SXSW announced 200+ artists a couple of weeks ago. If you want to get a preview of a handful of the acts who will grace our stages in March, you can listen to our first SXSW 2018 Artist Announcement show of the season now, featuring music from Nashville rock group Sun Seeker, Berlin duo Gurr, and London Jazz act Moses Boyd Solo X. If you want to make sure you never miss an artist announcement, you can sign up for our SXSW Music Community Newsletter.
