Howard-Tilton Memorial Library


New Orleans has a vibrant music community and while jazz, funk, and hip-hop dominate the popular imagination, there’s so much more to local musical life than just that. The New Orleans Independent Music Digital Collection seeks to expose the vast complexity of musical New Orleans by serving as an ever-growing research platform for local indie music.
We're always looking for more music to add to the collection. There are three core criteria for inclusion: the band must be based in New Orleans, the album must be an independent release, and Howard-Tilton Memorial Library must already own a physical copy of the album. To protect bands’ rights and sales, we only digitize one or two tracks of any album and only after securing the permission of the copyright holder. If you are a member of a local indie band with a recording out that you want to see in the Library and included in the New Orleans Independent Music Digital Collection, write to
