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.

Desert Noises

Thursday, we've got the Provo-based band Desert Noises in studio as part of our local music series. A lot of musicians are dedicated to their music and try to make a splash - but Desert Noises has gone all-in. The four members quit their jobs and they spent six months last year playing around the country. They're hitting the road again at the end of the month for a 16-city-tour, but first they'll join us to talk about evolving as a band and to play some of their newest songs.
