There's a young and vibrant music scene right here in Utah. From Provo to Ogden and beyond, bands are playing in house concerts, live venues and local record labels are making them available to the public. RadioWest brings some of the newest and the best bands into the studio to talk about and to play their music live.

Three Utah Bands

Fictionist joined us at the KUER studios in May of 2011

A lot of really great bands have emerged in this digital era and you don't have to go very far to find them. Today we're listening back to a few of the local bands we've profiled. It's not just the music that impressed us. It's also their commitment to their art and the fact that they're giving it a go. You'll hear from Holy Water Buffalo, young guys just starting out, The Legendary Porch Pounders who have been around the bend a time or two, and from Fictionist, a band who is breaking through.
