So instead, we once again, present another edition of Other Sources, where we let you know where else you can find and hear Iowa music.
Today, we feature The Iowa Music Project!

And right now, IMP is having a contest for bands and artists with ANY kind of connection to Iowa.
"The IMP Songwriting Showcase is a songwriting showcase organized by IMP with support of the Iowa Arts Council and other local partners. Artists and/or bands have the chance to record an original song at Flat Black studios as well as perform at a concert at the Des Moines Social Club on June 2, 2016."

For information on how to submit - http://iowamusicproject.com/showcase/
You can also write them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As part of this showcase, they have two playlists - one on SoundCloud and one on YouTube - featuring all these Iowa artists. You can find both of these playlists at the bottom of this blog post.
And you can vote EVERY day for your favorite! (I've been voting for The Starry Nights!) Just go here - http://littlevillagemag.com/imp/ - and pick your favorite!
