For years, The Inlander has been a champion of local music, listing Spokane concerts big and small and giving in-depth previews and reviews of local artist albums and projects.  In recent years, their Volume music festival has grown from a single-venue, one-night concert into the two-night, multi-venue block party coming this May 30th and 31st.  The 103.1 KCDA Local Lounge has provided a decade-plus of weekly studio and air time for unsigned musicians from the Inland Northwest.  Hundreds of Spokane solo artists and even full bands have brought in their gear and talent to produce a half-hour show that's all about the music and the people behind it.  It's only natural for print and radio to combine forces to give Volume 2014 the attention it deserves, especially when so many of this year's artists have already been in the Local Lounge.
 
On the last two Sundays in May, you will hear a mix of exclusive, live-in-the-Local-Lounge recordings from Spokane artists, as well as album tracks from regional touring bands, all of whom will perform at this year's Volume music fest.  The organizers of Volume 2014, writer Leah Sottile and promoter Patrick Kendrick, will join Matt Loi, the producer for the past seven years, to present a special two-week feature on the 103.1 KCDA Local Lounge, airing May 18th and 25th at 10pm.
