Ventipop Music shines a light on lesser-known, deserving artists & songs. We find indie, talented musicians with the hopes you will hear something new you like. Discovering the best new indie music is at the heart of Ventipop. Occasionally, we also feature forgotten or underheard songs from the past. We don't write about music. We listen to it. Every song we feature on Ventipop gets added to the playlist. Drop us a line if you discover a new artist Ventipop should feature.


"I used to work in the cotton fields a lot when I was young. There were a lot of African Americans working out there. A lot of Mexicans - the blacks and the whites and the Mexicans, all out there singing, and it was like an opera in the cotton fields, and I can still hear it in the music that I write and play today." ~ Willie nelson
