Presenting: "VOLUMES .001"

By Guillermo Casanova

We live in Orlando and we love to climb, so we’re already pretty screwed, but it is this mutual pain that binds us together as a community. Lacking mountains or boulders to climb on, we search for other forms of entertainment outside of the gym. To soothe this pain we created VOLUMES; a series of music compilations curated by yours truly, meant to showcase fresh music from talented artists right here in our local community. You may stream the tracks below or download the whole thing for free here.

Talent is all around us, and we get too much bad rep of being known as a cultural wasteland, where nothing interesting ever happens and where all one can find is Mickey Mouse, suburbs, and clubs. Volumes is an attempt to give local talent much deserved light by bringing it to fellow Floridians, with the goal of strengthening connections in the community and making you aware Florida is booming with activity.

Being in Orlando already offers you the opportunity to see many well known acts once in a while at high cost, but becoming a fan of local acts allows you to see them all the time and certainly at a much lower cost. Plus, you know that money is supporting those artists and venues thus, self-sustaining your own community.

We hope you enjoy exploring the work of these musicians, go to their shows, get out there and show that Florida is not a place of mass exodus, but the place to be. So whether you are climbing, working out or just chillin’, these sounds are sure to enhance whatever situation you might find yourself in. You may download the full compilation here for free, or stream below.
